Long Beach State Men’s Basketball Announcement Coming Thursday

An announcement concerning the contract of 11-year head coach Dan Monson, and the future of the Long Beach State men’s basketball program is expected to come Thursday, according to the university sports information department.

Monson’s unique five-year contract with the university expires after next season, but LBSU Andy Fee said he and Monson met last week to discuss if there are some options to keep him long term.

“As you get into the last year (of a contract) there’s really no point (not renegotiating),” Fee said on the latest episode of The LB Fee Show. “I’ve seen it done before, but I’m not a fan of that. I don’t think the health of your program is at the heart of that decision because you still have to recruit. You can’t just hit a pause button and just pick it up in the fall of 2019.”
