JMU locks up Brooks through 2015-16

Hmmm.... That headline makes it seem as though Kenny Brooks broke the law or something. But it's nothing that sinister; if fact it's the best possible news for James Madison fans - the Dukes have extended the contract of their highly successful women's basketball coach for an additional year through the 2015-16 season. Financial terms weren't disclosed, but whatever he's making, Brooks sure seems happy with it.

"It's an honor in itself to be the head women's basketball coach here at JMU," Brooks said in a release.  "The fact that the administration has extended my contract for an additional year shows the commitment and support that we have received over the years.  That, combined with the support from the community, truly makes this one of the best jobs in America."

Given that JMU's success in recent years has raised the possibility that a bigger school might try to spirit Brooks away, that last line has got to be music to Dukes fans' ears.
