STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford men's basketball coach Johnny Dawkins has signed a two-year contract extension that takes him through the 2015-16 season with the Cardinal.

Athletic director Bob Bowlsby made the announcement Wednesday about the new deal for Dawkins, who owns a 49-48 record in three seasons at Stanford, including last season's 15-16 mark.

The 47-year-old Dawkins was a longtime Duke assistant under Mike Krzyzewski and a former All-America at the school where he had been on the coaching staff since the 1997-98 season. He played for a national championship and won it all as an assistant coach.

Last season marked his first with a roster of his own recruits after he took over in April 2009 following Trent Johnson's departure for LSU.
