Tommy Tuberville gets a raise
Texas Tech happy with new coach
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville has a
one-year contract extension that runs through 2015 and a raise that
boosts his annual salary to $2 million.
The West Texas school announced the extension and
$500,000-per-year raise Tuesday.
Tuberville led the Red Raiders to an 8-5 record his first
season, including a 45-38 win over Northwestern in the TicketCity
Bowl in Dallas. Tuberville, who was out of coaching for a year
after leaving Auburn in 2008, was the first Texas Tech coach to win
his bowl debut.
Tuberville was hired last January after Texas Tech fired Mike
Leach amid allegations that he mistreated a player with a
concussion. Leach has sued the school.
