TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Fresh off its first bowl win in 10 years, Arizona plans to extend coach Mike Stoops' contract by three years, through 2013.
Details of the deal have yet to be worked out. It is subject to the approval of the Arizona Board of Regents.
``We're very pleased with the progress of Arizona football under Mike's direction,'' athletic director Jim Livengood said Tuesday. ``His personal growth as a coach has been outstanding and we're glad to continue moving forward with him as the steward for Arizona football.''
Stoops, who inherited a 2-10 team in 2003, is coming off the best season at Arizona. The Wildcats went 8-5 and defeated No. 17 BYU 31-21 in the Las Vegas Bowl.
Stoops is 25-34 and has seven wins over Top 25 teams.
