Wake Forest announced Saturday night that men’s basketball Coach Danny Manning has signed an undisclosed extension recently. “Danny is attracting highly-rated and quality young men to our program and he has proven his ability to develop that talent,” Wake Forest Athletics Director Ron Wellman said in a news release. “Our program will continue to improve and we will realize the lofty goals that we have.” Wake Forest is in the midst of a 2-4 season, having beaten UNC Greensboro on Friday night after the worst start for the Deacons in more than 50 years. Manning, who’s in his fourth season at the helm after a two-year stint at Tulsa, has a 45-57 record at Wake Forest. The former legendary Kansas player and NBA All-Star has displayed a knack for developing talent among forwards and centers, best evidenced by the growth of John Collins, who went from a reserve as a freshman to the 19th pick in the NBA Draft after his sophomore season.
