The Indiana Pacers have exercised their option to have Steve Gansey continue as head coach of the Mad Ants for the 2017-18 season, the clubs announced today.

The Pacers named Gansey head coach following the purchase of the team in August 2015, making this his third consecutive season as head coach for the Ants.

“Steve has shown a great professional and personal development over the last two seasons with the Mad Ants.” General Manager Brian Levy said in a statement. “The hard work he and his staff have put in makes us feel the team is headed in a positive direction under his leadership.”

During the 2016-17 regular season the Mad Ants went 30-20, falling to Maine in the first round of the D-League playoffs.
