Providence College Men’s Basketball Coach Training Period Extended

PROVIDENCE – Ed Cooley has agreed to a multi-year contract extension, which will remain at the helm of the Providence College men’s basketball program for the foreseeable future.

The town’s citizen and the monks made an official announcement on Tuesday. The talks lasted for the better part of six months, and they finally came to a conclusion.

Details of the deal were not disclosed, but Providence athletic director Steve Napolello confirmed that Colley will receive an additional position, a salary increase and a greater compensation pool for his employees. The brothers will also continue to make improvements to their own facilities, to their downtown home in the newly named Amica Insurance Pavilion and to what their program can offer players in terms of NCAA-certified name, image, and likeness opportunities.

Ed Cooley, who was shown during the Providence event earlier this year, agreed to an extension of his contract as a men's basketball coach at Providence College after directing his brothers to the 16th round of the NCAA Championship last season.

“Not many coaches can live out the dream of coaching in their hometown, and I feel happy every day that I have this opportunity,” Cooley said in a statement. “It’s been the privilege of working with great administrators and coaching some of the best players in the country.”
