Harry Redknapp brought the former England captain to Fratton Park last summer on an initial 12-month contract.
Adams was only planning to spend one season with Pompey before having another stab at being a manager in his own right.
But Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie has confirmed that the ex-Wycombe boss has decided to stay on as Redknapp's assistant for another year.
"Tony is staying for another season and has verbally agreed another contract," Storrie told the News.
"Harry wanted to keep him. He's an important part of his management team and that's what we have done.
"I don't think there was any doubt of Tony staying anyway, it's just that he has been having trouble with his back through the day-to-day travelling.
"It's great news and shows how strongly he feels that this club is going places."
Meanwhile, Storrie revealed Pompey are still waiting for Svetoslav Todorov and Kanu to decide on new contracts.
Storrie added: "Toddy and Kanu have got until 30th June before their existing contracts run out.
"After that they can sign what's on offer or go on week-to-week deals. The deals are there, it's really up to them if they want to stay with us."
