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.

Tagovailoa continues weighing options

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Tua Tagovailoa said being assured he'd likely remain a high NFL draft pick could make “the biggest decision of my life" a little easier.

The Alabama quarterback is still weighing his options and going through rehab for the right hip injury that ended his junior season - and potentially his career with the 11th-ranked Crimson Tide. Once regarded as a potential No. 1 overall pick, Tagovailoa said Thursday that if he feels he'll still be a Top 10 or 15 pick, that might be too tempting to stick around.
