PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) Washington State coach Mike Leach has agreed in principle to a one-year contract extension that could keep him at the school through the 2024 season.
Leach will be paid $4 million for each year of the five-year contract, school officials said. He will also receive a one-time retention bonus of $750,000 following the 2020 season.
Leach is in his eighth season at Washington State and has led the Cougars to a school-record five consecutive bowl games, though they stumbled to a 6-6 record this year. Leach's 55 wins with the Cougars rank him third in program history.
