CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — College of Charleston coach Earl Grant has agreed to a contract extension that will tie him to the school for five more seasons.

The school said Friday the contract still must be finalized. The deal will run through 2022-23.

Grant led the Cougars to their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 19 years this March. Charleston hung with Southeastern Conference champion Auburn in the tournament’s opening round before falling 62-58.

Grant led College of Charleston to a 26-8 mark and a Colonial Athletic Association Tournament title this season. The Cougars were 14-0 at home this season.

Athletic director Matt Roberts said Grant has brought excitement and championship basketball back to the school.

Grant said he was honored by the show of support from Charleston and looked forward to keeping the program’s rise going.

Success is a Choice – Lessons from Stephen Curry

Success is not something you are born with.? It is not a hereditary trait.? It is not through money or privilege that we find complete satisfaction and acceptance in our accomplishments.

Success is derived from a personal choice.? It is the decisions we make and the actions we take that separate those that are going through the motions and those that truly leave a lasting mark on their surroundings and the people in their lives.? It is a recipe of passion, hard work, focus and attitude.

Road map is simple:

To plan

To motivate

To practice

To perfect

To never accept no

This is a choice successful people make.? It is a dedication to something much bigger than themselves.? Alan Stein narrates this inspirational look at why Stephen Curry is one of the most exciting and accomplished athletes in the world.

Listen and absorb the message.? It is strong, it is powerful and it is all within ourselves.

We talk about how great and successful Charleston is, but it is the people that truly define a place.

Do you have what it takes to be successful?
