Texas A&M-Commerce announced a new contract for Ladies Basketball Coach Jason Burton. In his two years in Commerce, Burton has turned the program around quite nicely, going 14-14 his first year and then following up with a 16-13 record with a win in the first round of the LSC tournament. Burton is a young and focused coach who will do things that will bring Championships back to Commerce and build a program that was once competitive.
Burton’s contract extension is not unlike Colby Carthel’s contract. Terms and details aside, basically he is signing on to be in Commerce for 3 more seasons and has the option to extend to another 2 seasons. On this level you cannot beat that. Also congrats to Coach Burton’s upcoming marriage to his girlfriend Alex Guiton. This is without a doubt a great investment to make. Great things are on the horizon for our Women’s program.
