FSU LOOKING TO EXTEND HAMILTON

After guiding Florida State to its best season in 16 years, Leonard Hamilton will be offered a contract extension that school officials said Tuesday would make him a “happy camper.”

Florida State president T.K. Wetherell and athletic director Randy Spetman acknowledged that they were working on an extension for Hamilton they hope to get signed after the season.

“I’m convinced Leonard will be back at Florida State and be a happy, happy, happy camper,” Wetherell said. “I don’t see Leonard going anywhere. I can see a number of people probably want him, but why would you want to leave what we’ve got here?”

They did not discuss specifics.

Although the Seminoles will lose star guard Toney Douglas and three-year starter Uche Echefu to graduation, Hamilton has three starters returning along with several key substitutes from the school’s most successful team since 1992-93.

The Seminoles have a 25-9 record going into NCAA tournament play Friday against Wisconsin in a first-round game at Boise, Idaho.
