Explorers, Giannini have new deal

Basketball coach John Giannini and La Salle University have agreed to a multiyear agreement, according to Explorers director of athletics Dr. Tom Brennan. Details of the agreement were not released.

“The basketball program has shown consistent progress during Dr. John’s tenure," Brennan said in a release. "The Explorers entered the 2009-2010 campaign as a preseason fourth pick in the A-10 Conference, following two solid seasons with a finish in the upper half of this very competitive conference. Unfortunately, the past season ended with disappointment as it was marked by an unprecedented rash of injuries."

The Explorers finished last season 12-18, 4-8 in the conference.

Giannini’s overall record at La Salle is 83-97 in six seasons and his career coaching record is 380-246. He also has been a head coach at Rowan and Maine.
