The Charlotte 49ers and men's basketball coach Alan Major have agreed to a three-year contract extension, the school announced Thursday.
Major, whose three-year record at Charlotte is 44-49, is now under contract through the 2017-18 season.
Under Major, the 49ers have improved from 10-20 his first season to 21-12 in 2012-13, the program's first 20-victory season since 2008. Charlotte also played in the NIT, its first postseason appearance since 2008.
Major is replenishing his roster after one player (DeMario Mayfield) was thrown off the team during the season and two others recently transferred (Darion Clark and E. Victor Nickerson). Charlotte has signed forward Cameron Blakley and Ben Cherry, a transfer from Tulane, for next season.
