Pack Notes: Head Coach David Carter Expected to Receive Raise/Extension, Pack Hopes to Raise Money for Upgraded Facilities

Head basketball coach David Carter is expected to receive a raise and contract extension following a successful 2011-2012 campaign.

This will be the first installment of a new feature I plan to use to keep everyone updated on all things Wolf Pack. Pack Notes will pretty much be a link dump for any Pack related news. I'm not much of the story type, so simple is better for me. With that, let's jump in.

Head basketball coach David Carter is expected to receive a raise and extension

After leading the basketball team to a 28-7 record and an appearance in the NIT quarterfinals this past season, head coach David Carter is set to receive a $100,000 raise and extension through 2017. The raise and extension is pending approval from the board of regents, but is expected to pass.

The Wolf Pack athletic department will look to raise $30 million over the next 5 years for upgraded athletic facilities

With the program set to move into a new conference, the Wolf Pack athletic department will look to raise funds to go toward upgraded athletic facilities in order to better stay competitive in the MWC. Long has the school desired an indoor practice facility for the football team, and Nevada remains the only cold weather school in the MWC not to have one. The recent budget concerns, along with the typically low attendance numbers, have forced the program to use donations on other matters (such as scholarships, etc.). Other facility upgrades planned are a basketball practice facility, a tennis facility, and upgrades to Mackey Stadium. The article is an interesting read overall and mentions a few other MWC schools throughout the piece. I recommend checking it out.

Nevada SP Braden Shipley wins WAC pitcher of the year honors

After posting a 1.42 ERA with a 4-2 record and 37 strikeouts in conference play, Nevada sophomore Braden Shipley took home the WAC's pitcher of the year honors. Shipley was the lead cog of what turned out to be a nice season for the Wolf Pack, with the team winning a share of the WAC regular season title with a 32-25 record. Nevada was recently knocked out of the WAC tournament, but still has an outside shot at an at large bid for the NCAA Regional Tournament.
