Phoenix — Grand Canyon has signed men's basketball coach Dan Majerle of Traverse City and Central Michigan to a four-year contract extension.

Terms of the deal were not released, but Grand Canyon said Majerle will be the highest-paid men's basketball coach in the Western Athletic Conference.

Grand Canyon has finished second and third in its first two seasons under Majerle, a former star with the Phoenix Suns.

Grand Canyon is not eligible for NCAA postseason play until it completes its four-year transition period to Division I in 2017-18.
