HOUSTON (AP) - Houston coach Tony Levine has agreed to a five-year contract that runs through the 2018 football season.
The new deal replaces the five-year contract he signed when he joined the Cougars before the 2012 season.
Houston finished 8-5 last season after a loss to Vanderbilt in the BBVA Compass Bowl. It was the 19th season in school history with at least eight wins.
The Cougars also had a marked improvement from Levine's first season, when they were 5-7.
Levine spent four seasons as an assistant with the Cougars before taking over the program when Kevin Sumlin left for Texas A&M.
The new contract was announced on Tuesday.
