BGSU extends Orr's pact


BOWLING GREEN — Bowling Green State University men's basketball coach Louis Orr has signed a two-year contract extension through the 2013-14 season.

“It's a blessing to be a part of the Bowling Green family,” said Orr, who led the Falcons to the Mid-American Conference regular season championship last season in only his second year with the team and was named MAC coach of the year.

“It's good to know that people support what you are trying to do and want to see you be successful.”

The Falcons went 19-14 last season and won a MAC division title for the first time since 2000.

“Louis has done a tremendous job of molding our men's basketball team into a group that believes it can win and compete for championships,” BGSU athletic director Greg Christopher said. “His first two seasons have been positive steps forward. We are now looking forward to Louis and his staff continuing to build our men's program long term.”
