Benford to coach in last year of contract

North Texas men’s basketball coach Tony Benford will enter the 2016-17 season in the final year of his contract after the school elected to retain him following a tough fourth season with the Mean Green.

UNT athletic director Rick Villarreal confirmed Tuesday that the school elected to retain Benford after Villarreal met with school president Neal Smatresk.

​Villarreal said UNT decided to retain Benford partly because of the talented group of players who are set to return next season.
