San Diego St. to announce fate of program under Fisher
San Diego — San Diego State has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday regarding the future of the men's basketball program.
The school says coach Steve Fisher and athletic director Jim Sterk will attend. Fisher coached Michigan to the 1989 national championship.
Fisher is in the final year of a four-year contract extension. He has said he would be open to remaining beyond that deal, which includes a clause that his long-time assistant, Brian Dutcher, is the head-coach-in-waiting.
Messages were left Tuesday night seeking comment from Fisher.
Hired prior to the 1999-2000 season, Fisher has revived a moribund program. SDSU has 10 20-win seasons and two 30-win seasons under Fisher and has made the NCAA tournament eight times, including two Sweet 16 appearances.
