5 more years of BG

We interrupt your NCAA madness to bring you this bit of news about the University of Dayton Flyers:

In the least surprising news of the day, the Flyers extend Brian Gregory's contact for another five years beyond the current deal, which was already through 2013. So he's now locked up through 2018 (verbal agreement so far, financials after the season ends).

I would imagine this is primarily an insurance policy on both sides. Gregory has the long-term contract that every coach wants, and he can sell that to recruits. UD will probably include some clause about if Gregory gets offered jobs at bigger programs, then they get something in return.

Not really a major story in my opinion, but it's definitely worth noting.

Please feel free to return to your madness as we are about six hours away from tip-off.
