OFFER – Ed Cooley has agreed to a multi-year contract extension for the future of the Providence College men’s basketball program.

The city’s native and wrecker made a formal announcement on Tuesday. Discussions have been going on for six months, and have finally come to a conclusion.

Details of the deal were not disclosed, but Providence athletic director Steve Napolilo confirmed that Cooley will receive more work time, a salary increase and a larger compensation pool for his staff.
