Leach Agrees to Contract Extension


LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Texas Tech and coach Mike Leach have agreed on a new contract after months of contentious negotiations.

The school called a news conference for Thursday evening to announce details of the agreement.

Leach and Texas Tech had essentially agreed on the financial terms of a five-year, $12.7 million deal. But Leach took issue with several clauses the school added when the sides were trading proposals.

He was prepared to keep coaching under the remaining two years of a five-year, $10 million contract.
