Minnesota Gopher basketball Coach, Tubby Smith's contract has been extended through the 2016-17 season! On Tuesday, Smith said his contract extension will keep his pay the same: $1.75 million a year. His new contract also added three years to the two remaining on his previous contract, but he didn't get a pay raise, like he wanted.
What does this mean for the Gopher team?
Smith thinks it's a good thing. "I can genuinely say, 'Look fellas, I'm here.' For kids we sign this year or next year, I'll be here. Nobody knows whether you'll be here for certain or not because a lot of things can happen. But you expect to be here because you have a contract extension."
Now let's see some wins on the board!
