NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk State University Director of Athletics Marty L. Miller announced Friday that women's basketball coach Larry Vickers has been signed to a three-year contract to lead the program.
Vickers was named interim head coach on Jan. 20 and coached the Spartans for the final 11 games of the season. He was appointed to the permanent post on March 8, originally on a one-year contract. The new three-year contract replaces the one-year deal and will keep Vickers as coach through the 2018-19 season.
"I am extremely happy to finalize the arrangements for Coach Vickers to serve as the head women's basketball coach for the next three years. We were impressed with the improvements that the women's basketball program made during the brief period that he coached the team," Miller said. "Due to his background and experience, I think he will be successful in achieving success for the program. I want to thank President Moore and the Board of Visitors for their vote of confidence in the decision to approve Coach Vickers to lead this program to higher heights."
The 2016-17 season will be Vickers' ninth season as a coach at NSU. He served eight years as an assistant coach with the men's basketball program.
