ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Central Florida basketball coach Donnie Jones has signed a contract extension through the 2017-2018 season.

UCF athletic director Todd Stansbury announced deal Friday, which adds three years to Jones' current pact.

The Knights have registered at least 20 wins each season under Jones, marking only the second time since the program moved up to Division I in 1984 that its achieved that feat.

Jones' extension also comes after the basketball program received a one-year postseason ban, reduction in scholarships and a show-cause order for the coach last July as part of a 2011 NCAA investigation that found the basketball and football programs were involved with runners for sports agents and making cash payments to recruits.

UCF moves to the new American Athletic Conference in all sports this year.
