MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Middle Tennessee coach Kermit Davis has agreed to a new contract that runs through the 2023-24 season.
School officials said Friday the seven-year deal will gives Davis a $575,000 base salary plus $175,000 each year for television and broadcast responsibilities.
Davis has led Middle Tennessee to an NCAA Tournament victory each of the last two seasons . Middle Tennessee stunned Michigan State in last year's tournament and defeated Minnesota this year before falling to Butler in the round of 32.
Davis is 307-180 in 15 seasons at Middle Tennessee, including a 154-54 mark over the last six seasons. The Blue Raiders went 31-5 this year.
In a school release announcing the new contract, Davis said, "I've never been more energized and excited about the future of Middle Tennessee basketball."
