The duo have been rewarded after helping lead Killie to our first top six spot in seven years, finishing in fifth place in the Ladbrokes Premiership in 2017/18.
A number of records were broken over the course of their debut campaign, including a club record points total of 59 beating our previous high total in 2002/03.
Killie’s form saw Steve voted the Scottish Football Writers’ Association Manager of the Year award at a ceremony in Glasgow in May.
Speaking to the official website from our training camp in La Manga, Steve said: "The club approached me at the end of last season and I have a good relationship with the people above me. I think the relationship is strong.
"I was very grateful and pleased that they came to me and offered me a new, improved contract. It tells you that you've done a good job and it shows they have a little bit of faith in you.
"It is easy to sign the contract and easy to take the rewards but the hard bit is that I need to repay that faith by doing more good work for the club and hopefully we can do that this season.
"I'm enjoying the job and I enjoy going to my work day in, day out and when you get that job satisfaction it is great."
Director Billy Bowie said: “The Board is delighted that the club has secured the services of both Steve and Alex on new deals. There’s a real feeling of unity at the club as we look forward to the new season.”
