Texas Southern gives basketball coaches contract extensions (694 hits)

Both Texas Southern's men and women's basketball teams had successful seasons and their coaches are reaping the benefits.

TxSo's Mike Davis and Johnetta Hayes-Perry both received two-year extensions, putting them in charge of their respective programs through 2022. Dr. Charles McClelland, Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics, made the announcement Wednesday night.

Hayes-Perry led the Tiger women to their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance last season, accumulating a 23-10 record and winning the SWAC title for the first time in the program's history.

"Stability is important," Hayes-Perry told Fox 26's Mark Berman. "It gives me an opportunity to recruit young ladies and let them know, you know, I do have stability and I will be here.

Davis led the Tiger men to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in five seasons in 2017 and won their third-straight regular season crown before claiming the tournament title at home. The team is 98-68 under his leadership and has won almost 85 percent of its SWAC games.

"I'm excited. I love the city of Houston, I love coaching at Texas Southern and this is where I want to be," Davis said.
