BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Canisius College men's basketball coach Tom Parrotta has signed a two-year contract extension that runs through the 2012-13 season.
In four seasons, Parrotta has a 44-81 record at Canisius, and is coming off his best year in which the Golden Griffins went 15-17. It was the team's best finish since going 20-11 in 2000-01, and marked only the 13th time in 50 years that Canisius has won 15 games.
The Golden Griffins have also won at least one Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament game in each of Parrotta's four seasons.
In announcing the extension on Tuesday, athletic director Bill Maher credited Parrotta for making steady progress in rebuilding the program.
