Hobbs' contract extended until 2011-2012

Good news, head coach Karl Hobbs gets an extra year, until the 2011-2012 season. Andy Katz says it's "yet another sign that Hobbs is at George Washington for the long haul" and WJLA notes that this is his third extension.

Hobbs has a 114-65 record record at GW. Interstingly, Katz notes "He's had his chances to bolt on the Colonials after taking them to the NCAA Tournament three times during his seven seasons at GW. A huge buyout, at one point estimated at $1 million, prevented him from leaving."

Katz also says that Tom Penders used GW as a stepping stone. More like he missed the stepping stone and fell into a lake, since his tenure in Foggy Bottom was beset by scandals.
