Alford signs 10-year deal to stay at UNM

-A A +A

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Steve Alford loves New Mexico and New Mexico loves Steve Alford.
Those simple facts made Wednesday, the eve of the second round of the NCAA tournament, as good a time as any for the Lobos to announce they’ve given their coach a new, 10-year contract that could be worth up to $2 million a year counting base salary and bonuses.
The deal calls for Alford to be in Albuquerque through 2023.
With the third-seeded Lobos getting ready to play No. 14 Harvard on Thursday in a West regional game, Alford’s contract was the hot topic in his day-before news conference.
Alford, who was directed to Albuquerque by his former coach, Bob Knight, is 155-51 over six years at New Mexico. The Lobos are in the NCAA tournament for the third time in four years.
“I think we have started to put our imprint on our program and we’ve got things in place to be successful,” Alford said. “We have put a great product out there, won games, won championships and now we’re trying to take that to another level.”
The new contract comes months before Alford’s son, Bryce, is set to play for his father with the Lobos. Bryce Alford is the second-leading scorer in New Mexico prep history.
