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.
