Drexel hoops coach Bruiser Flint agrees to extension

Posted: March 26, 2012

Drexel athletic director Eric Zillmer announced Monday that Bruiser Flint, the Dragons' head men's basketball coach, has agreed to a multi-year contract extension to remain at the school. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Flint, who recently completed his 11th season at the school, led the Dragons to a school record 29 victories in 2011-12. The Dragons won 19 straight games at one point, including 16 straight CAA contests, that shattered the old school mark of 16 straight wins.

Flint's team won at least 20 games for the second straight season and for the third time in the last six seasons. He is third in career victories at Drexel with 199 and has led the Dragons to the postseason five times.

"Bruiser has done an outstanding job of making Drexel one of the top programs in the CAA over the last 11 years," Zillmer said. "We look forward to him continuing to lead the Dragons in the years to come."

Flint picked up his the CAA coach of the year award after finishing 16-2 in CAA play this season. It was his record-tying fourth CAA coach of the year award, tying him with former Richmond head coach Dick Tarrant. He previously won the award in 2002, 2004 and 2009. Flint was also an All-District coach of the year selection for the fourth time.
