Loudonville, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Siena head men's basketball coach Jimmy Patsos had one year added to his contract, the school announced Wednesday.
Patsos, who is now signed through 2018-19, guided Siena to a 12-win improvement and a CBI title last season in his first year at the helm.
"The turnaround of our team both in terms of on-court success and talent level happened much more quickly than we thought it would," vice president and director of athletics John D'Argenio said in a statement. "That is a testament to coach Patsos' ability to recruit quality student athletes and teach and motivate young men to realize their potential."
Patsos coached for nine seasons at Loyola-Maryland prior to taking over the Siena program.
