Stanford Director of Athletics Bernard Muir said that Jerod Haase would return as the Cardinal head men’s basketball coach next season. Muir released the following statement today:
“Coach Haase and I agree that the on-court results of our men’s basketball program are not what we want them to be,” Muir said in a statement. “Having said that, I believe that the young nucleus of talent on our team and promising recruiting will propel us to take the next steps we all desire while our program continues to operate with great integrity and achieve the highest levels of academic excellence. I look forward to my continued partnership with Coach Haase.”
Haase has gone 98-90 (.521) in his six seasons at Stanford. This season, he led the Cardinal to a 16-16 (8-12 Pac-12) record. During Hasse’s tenure in Palo Alto, Stanford has not made it to an NCAA Tournament.
