Steve Fisher to coach SDSU basketball through 2016-2017 season

San Diego State Aztecs basketball coach Steve Fisher is 71 years old and has already put together a lifetime’s worth of accomplishments. Those facts, plus the team having a Head-Coach-In-Waiting in Assistant Coach Brian Dutcher, has led to speculation that Fisher might retire before the start of next season.

Now, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Coach Fisher will return to the sidelines to coach at least one more season of SDSU basketball, his 18th (he joined San Diego State before the 1999-2000 season). Hopefully, it won’t be his last.

Last year’s Aztecs team was as disappointing as it was young, going 28-10 before getting deep in the NIT tournament. They finished as Mountain West Conference Champions for the 5th time in the last six seasons, and are expected to be even better this season if Malik Pope spurns the NBA and returns to San Diego State.
