Jimmy Patsos is going to be in Loudonville for awhile.

Siena announced on Wednesday morning that Patsos’ contract had been extended one year, keeping him with the program through the 2018-2019 season.

All other elements of the original contract remain the same.

“I’m grateful to be here, I love this place,” Patsos said. “This week we had our golf outing and a lunch with the ‘old-timers’, and it shows the generations of people impacted by the Siena program. I’m just a passenger, along for the ride, and I’m lucky to be a part of it.”

Patsos, who had previously coached at Loyola and worked as an assistant at Maryland, took over as the 16th coach in Saints history on April 3, 2013 and quickly turned around a team that had been originally picked 10th in the preseason MAAC coaches poll.

Following a 12-win improvement, which tied for the second best in all of Division I, Patsos led Siena to a CBI championship over Fresno State, the team’s first national championship in the Division I era.
