Texas A&M University-Commerce has announced a contract extension for men’s basketball coach Jaret von Rosenberg through the 2026-27 season.

“Ever since his arrival in Commerce, coach von Rosenberg has elevated the program as one of the elite men’s basketball programs in Division II and a consistent postseason qualifier,” said Interim Director of Athletics Eric Coleman. “With this commitment, we are excited to see Jaret and his staff continue to grow the program as we enter the Division I era.”

Reaching the NCAA Tournament in three of his four opportunities in Commerce, von Rosenberg has amassed 88 wins as the leader of the Lion men’s basketball program, being the fastest coach in Lion basketball history to record 88 wins.

The Lions have recorded more than 17 wins in all four full seasons under “Coach Rose.” Thirteen student-athletes have received all-conference honors von Rosenberg and three student-athletes have earned player of the year nods from the Lone Star Conference.

“My family and I are so grateful for the Commerce community and the love and support they have shown our family,” said von Rosenberg. “There is no place we would rather be. Thank you to Dr. Rudin, the university administration, Eric Coleman, and the entire athletic department.”

“The support of our program and vision by these people is why we have had and will continue to have great success. I am so appreciative to be the A&M-Commerce Men’s Basketball Head Coach and look forward to collectively, with all the LION pride, seeking Division I championships and banners in the Southland Conference!”
