Chattanooga men's hoop coach McCall gets 2-year extension

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) Chattanooga women's basketball coach Jim Foster has received a one-year contract extension.

School officials announced Foster's extension Thursday, hours after saying men's basketball coach Matt McCall had received a two-year extension. Both coaches' contracts run through the 2021-22 season.

Athletic director David Blackburn said in a statement the coaches ''could be at a number of places around the nation and we're thankful they are in Chattanooga.''

Foster is 82-16 at Chattanooga and has led the Mocs to NCAA Tournament appearances in each of his three seasons.

McCall led Chattanooga to a 29-6 record as a first-year head coach. The Mocs set a program record for victories and captured their first Southern Conference regular-season title since 1994. They also won the league's postseason tournament and their first NCAA bid since 2009.
