Mar 26, 2012 - 8:06 PM Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Drexel University announced Monday that men's head basketball coach Bruiser Flint has signed a multi-year contract extension to remain at the school.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We are pleased to announce that Bruiser Flint has signed an extension to stay at Drexel, Drexel athletics director Eric Zillmer said. "Bruiser has done an outstanding job of making Drexel one of the top programs in the CAA over the last 11 years. We look forward to him continuing to lead the Dragons in the years to come."

Flint guided Drexel to a school-record 29 victories in 2011-12, which included a 19-game winning streak. The Dragons, who finished first in the Colonial Athletic Conference with a 16-2 mark, lost to second-seeded VCU in the CAA Tournament title game.
