MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Coach Kermit Davis has agreed to a five-year contract extension with Middle Tennessee that runs through the 2016-17 season.

Athletic director Chris Massaro announced the deal on Wednesday, saying continuity is the best way for the Blue Raiders to accomplish their goals.

Davis took the Blue Raiders to a school-record 27 wins this season and was the Sun Belt Conference coach of the year. The Blue Raiders lost to Minnesota in the National Invitation Tournament in the quarterfinals after a big win at Tennessee.

Davis now is Middle Tennessee's winningest coach after 10 seasons.

Counting this spring, the last 23 players to finish their eligibility under Davis will graduate from Middle Tennessee.

The deal still must be approved by the Tennessee Board of Regents.
