GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -Skip Holtz and East Carolina agreed to a new contract Tuesday that will last through the 2013 season.
Athletic director Terry Holland said the contract contains changes to his incentive and bonus structure and should encourage Holtz ``to stay with us a long, long time.''
Holland said specifics of Holtz's new deal can't be released until the contract is approved by the school's board of trustees.
Holtz has led the Pirates to consecutive winning seasons and bowls for the first time since 1999-2000.
In December 2006, he signed an extension through 2011 worth $4.35 million over five seasons.
The announcement came four days before East Carolina's season opener against No. 17 Virginia Tech in Charlotte.
