AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) -- Air Force basketball coach Dave Pilipovich has agreed to a five-year contract.

Athletic director Dr. Hans Mueh announced the deal Wednesday.

The 49-year-old Pilipovich took over the Falcons as interim coach in February 2012 when Jeff Reynolds was relieved of his duties and became the full head coach that March. He was 2-6 at the end of the 2011-12 season and directed the team to an 18-14 mark last season
