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.
