TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State has not found a football coach, but the administration obviously believes the basketball program is in good hands. Herb Sendek, who has won 20 games in three of his five-plus seasons with the Sun Devils, was awarded a contract extension Thursday that will keep him at ASU through June 30, 2016. The Arizona Board of Regents authorized a two-year extension to Sendeks contract that is worth 1.2 million annually, with 295,000 in base salary and 905,000 in additional compensation. His salary did not increase, but it may be bumped each July 1 through recommendations from Athletic Director Lisa Love and President Michael Crow, subject to the boards approval. Sendek, who is 91-80 after a 3-5 start this season, will earn a 600,000 retention bonus if he remains employed on June 30, 2014.The extension agreement came seven months after the board added two years to Arizona coach Sean Millers contract, which also goes through 2016. Miller, who was paid 2 million a year under terms of his 2009 deal, was given an additional 100,000 a year in salary. That extension came shortly after Maryland met with Miller about its coaching vacancy. Sendeks teams won 21, 25 and 22 games from 2008-10, making the NCAA tournament in 2009 and the NIT the other two times. He was the Pac-10 coach of the year in 2010. ASU fell to 12-19 and last place in the Pac-10 last season. The young Sun Devils have struggled this season, having lost three straight home games after a 69-61 loss to Nevada on Wednesday in which Sendek criticized the team's performance. ASU is one of nine NCAA Division I teams without a senior this year, according to research cited by the athletic department, and has played without top recruit Jahii Carson, a point guard out of Mesa High who has yet to qualify academically after retaking the SAT test.
