Fairfield University extended men’s basketball coach Sydney Johnson’s contract through the 2018-19 season on Wednesday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Johnson’s original deal at Fairfield was also not reported, but believed to be either a four- or five-year deal.
Johnson, who enters his second year with the Stags after leaving Princeton, has Fairfield off to a 4-4 start this season. The Stags play their home and MAAC opener Friday at Webster Bank Arena against Canisius. Tip off is 7 p.m.
The extension of Johnson and men’s lacrosse coach Andrew Copelan, over the summer, means that AD Gene Doris has his top two coaches locked up through the 2019 season.
