Richard set to return at Tech

Louisiana Tech men's basketball fans can expect another year at the helm by current head coach Keith Richard.

Although Tech Athletic Director Jim Oakes hasn't officially extended Richard another season, it appears as if that will be the case.

"We'll continue to evaluate our men's basketball program in relation to our strategic plan," Oakes said on Wednesday. "We're always looking for ways to improve in all sports through the evaluation of our goals and objectives."

Richard, whose team finished 10-20 overall and 7-9 in the WAC, lost to New Mexico State in the first round of the WAC tournament. The Bulldogs will graduate seven players off that team.

Richard's current contract will end this summer and Oakes couldn't say whether Richard would receive an extension or would have to operate without one, as do coaches in all Tech sports except football and men's and women's basketball.

Tech President Dan Reneau will make the final decision regarding Richard.
