Duquesne coach Jim Ferry receives contract extension

PITTSBURGH -- Duquesne men's basketball coach Jim Ferry signed a contract extension on Tuesday as his rebuilding project with the Dukes continues.

Terms of the extension were not disclosed. Ferry is 33-58 in three seasons at Duquesne, including a 12-19 mark in 2014-15. The Dukes went 6-12 in the Atlantic 10 last season and won an opening-round game in the Atlantic 10 tournament for just the third time in the past 20 years. Ferry came to Duquesne in 2012 following a decade at Long Island, which he led to NCAA tournament appearances in 2011 and 2012.

Ferry says his staff has made "significant strides" over the past two years. The Dukes will return four starters in 2015-16, including senior guard Derrick Colter and senior forward Jeremiah Jones.
