Former Alabama assistant basketball coach signs extension with Arkansas State

Alabama and Nate Oats's success in 2023-24 can not be understated after replacing ten players and all three assistant coaches from last year’s team. Among the departures was assistant coach Bryan Hodgson who left Tuscaloosa to take over as the head coach for the Arkansas State Red Wolves.

It was no easy fix of a job for Hodgson as he inherited a 13-20 program that finished 4-14 in conference play. However, his first year yielded great results as the Red Wolves finished the season with an 18-16 record and finished fourth in the conference with an 11-7 record.

After a successful first season on the job, Hodgson and Arkansas State have agreed on an extension through the 2029 season. The raise will see his yearly salary increase to $450,000 with an increase in his buyout.
