After going 21-13 in 2013 and being named the Big South Conference Coach of the Year, men's head basketball coach Chris Holtmann has received a contract extension from Gardner-Webb. Holtmann will now be coach of the Runnin' Bulldogs thru 2018.
Gardner-Webb finished 2nd in the South Division and made it to the finals of the Big South Conference tournament before losing to Liberty.
The program reached the 20 win plateau for the first time since 2001. The Runnin' Bulldogs were also the only team in the Big South to win at least 20 games this season.
