Fernandez inks new 3-year deal

Coming off one of the most challenging seasons of his coaching career, USF women’s basketball coach Jose Fernandez will have a chance to get the Bulls back on track.
Fernandez has signed a new three-year contract that runs through the 2012-13 season and pays him more than $200,000 annually.
“We are very pleased to have been able to extend Coach Fernandez’s contract,’’ USF athletic director Doug Woolard said in a statement. “Jose has done a fine job with our women’s basketball program and has us well-positioned for continued success.’’
Fernandez’s new deal has a base salary of $150,000, a $25,000-per-season increase over the five-year contract that expired last season, and a supplemental package that pays him at least an additional $55,000 per season.
In 10 seasons, Fernandez has a career record of 158-148, making him the winningest coach in USF basketball history.
The Bulls, after winning the 2009 WNIT title, finished 15-16 last season in a campaign marred by injuries, suspensions and defections that forced Fernandez to finish the final month of the season with only eight players.
