Leavitt Gets Extension
South Florida coach Jim Leavitt agreed to a two-year contract extension through 2014 on Monday.
``What his leadership has accomplished is unmatched in the country with regards to beginning and developing a nationally recognized football program,'' athletic director Doug Woolard said.
The Tampa Tribune reported on its Web site that the new deal will pay Leavitt $12.6 million over the next seven seasons, with his annual salary increasing by $100,000 each year of the contract.
Leavitt, who in the past has turned down opportunities to coach at Alabama and Kansas State, is 79-47 in 11 seasons. The Bulls finished 9-4 last year, when attendance climbed a nation-best 22,948 per game to 53,170.
