Adams, who was linked with the Aberdeen job before Derek McInnes replaced Craig Brown, has been in charge at Victoria Park since May 2011.
He led them to promotion from the First Division in 2011/12 and a fifth-placed finish in their first season in the top flight.
The former Motherwell and Aberdeen midfielder, who began his playing career at County, also guided them to the Scottish Cup final in 2010 - where they lost to Dundee United - during his first spell as the club's manager before joining Hibernian as assistant boss for a brief stint.
Adams told the club's official website: "I am delighted to extend my stay at Ross County Football Club.
"We are one of the few clubs in Scotland with access to quality training facilities right here at the stadium, and having started my tenure in the Second Division we have been able to build not only a team and a squad but also a culture at the football club.
"Our successes have been built on this ethos, and I think this shows what can be achieved by building a team spirit and putting the players at the heart of the football club.
"I am under no illusions as to the challenges that lie ahead in the coming seasons, but both I and my players relish them and I am delighted to be preparing for them with the added stability this extension to my contract gives us."
