Randy Bennett has been rewarded after successfully transforming the men's basketball program at tiny Saint Mary's College, receiving a new 10-year contract through the 2026-27 season.

Beginning his 17th season at the picturesque school outside San Francisco, Bennett has built mid-major Saint Mary's into a West Coast Conference power and a regular player on the national stage — and the Gaels have won 29 games in each of the past two season.
