WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman says basketball coach Jeff Bzdelik will be back for a fourth season.
In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Wellman re-affirmed his support for Bzdelik and said he is ``very encouraged about the future of our program.''
The Demon Deacons have had three straight losing seasons and no postseason tournament appearances under Bzdelik. He is 34-60 overall and 11-42 against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.
This year's young team went 13-18 with upset wins over No. 2 Miami and No. 18 North Carolina State with a roster that had only three available non-freshmen on scholarship.
More than 60 percent of the team's minutes were played by freshmen and Wellman says the Demon Deacons ``are going to reap the benefits of that foundation.''
