Toledo extends coach Tod Kowalczyk
TOLEDO, Ohio -- The University of Toledo has signed coach Tod Kowalczyk to a two-year contract extension through the 2018-19 season.
Kowalczyk took over a troubled Rockets program in 2010-11 and went 4-28. In his second year, Toledo was 19-17. Last season's team was held out of postseason play due to Academic Progress Rate issues yet tied for first in the Mid-American Conference's West Division with a 10-6 mark. Toledo was 15-13 overall.
The Rockets are scheduled to return four starters in 2013-14, including first-team All-MAC selection Rian Pearson.
Kowalczyk was 136-112 record in eight years at Wisconsin-Green Bay's head coach before coming to Toledo.
