Coffman, entering his third season at the helm of the program with a 40-25 record through two years, led the Mastodons to the 2015-16 Summit League regular season title and was recognized as The Summit League Coach of the Year. The Mastodons completed their historic and memorable campaign with a final record of 24-10, the second-most wins in school history, and only the sixth 20-win season in 43 years of competition in the sport. Featuring three All-League performers, including Player of the Year Max Landis, IPFW earned an automatic bid to play in the prestigious National Invitation Tournament (NIT), the oldest tournament in college basketball, for the first time in school history as regular season co-champions and top seed for the league tournament.
IPFW has upgraded and extended the contract for head men’s basketball coach Jon Coffman through 2021, announced Director of Athletics Kelley Hartley Hutton. The terms of the agreement reflect the program’s success both on and off the court and the University’s commitment to compete in a competitive marketplace.
