INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Pacers have signed coach Jim O'Brien through the 2010-11 season.

O'Brien initially signed a three-year deal in 2007, with an option for a fourth year. The team did not disclose terms Friday's announcement.

Pacers president Larry Bird said he feels the team is moving in the right direction.

The Pacers have missed the playoffs in the first two years of O'Brien's tenure, with identical 36-46 records.

The Pacers already have All-Star forward Danny Granger. They have drafted Roy Hibbert, Brandon Rush and Tyler Hansbrough the past two years in hopes of building a young nucleus around Granger.
