CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -When Davidson coach Bob McKillop signed a contract extension a year ago, there was no announcement, no news conference, no publicity.
On Saturday, a conference room was crammed with television cameras and reporters as Davidson announced a three-year extension, one that will keep McKillop at the tiny liberal arts school through at least the 2015-16 season.
Coming within a missed 3-pointer of the Final Four sure changes a coach's public profile.
``I couldn't be more at peace in terms of where I am personally in my journey,'' McKillop said. ``In terms of where I am for my family, in terms of where I am with my job, my friends, our players, our program, I'm really at peace. I think there's a grasp, an understanding of the system, the program.''
McKillop, who turns 58 next month, was rewarded for last season's storybook NCAA tournament run.
McKillop is 340-225 in 19 seasons at Davidson.
Behind sophomore star Stephen Curry, Davidson upset Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin. Jason Richards then missed a shot at the buzzer in a 59-57 loss to eventual national champion Kansas.
