COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Tech men’s basketball coach Steve Payne and women’s basketball coach Jim Davis have agreed to contract extensions running through the 2018-19 season.

Athletic director Mark Wilson announced the extensions Thursday, but no financial terms were released in the university statement.

Payne owns a 48-47 record in three seasons at Tennessee Tech, including a 17-16 mark last year. Payne was a top assistant on former Tennessee Tech coach Mike Sutton’s staff for nine years before taking over the program in 2011.

Davis is entering his third season at Tennessee Tech as the women’s coach with a 31-30 record. Tennessee Tech went 19-12 and finished atop the Ohio Valley Conference East Division standings in 2012-13 before going 12-18 last season.
