Buzz gets contract extension
His base salary will be $200,000 but -- counting radio, TV and endorsement revenues -- his total package will run around $785,000 per year. ''Buzz has done a great job of managing our program and connecting with Tennessee fans,'' UT Athletics Director Doug Dickey said. ''He has recruited an outstanding class that is currently on campus, and I hope with our returning players this will be an outstanding season for Tennessee basketball.'' Peterson has a 120-66 career record that includes previous stops at Appalachian State and Tulsa. His first Vol team went 15-16 last winter, due in part to an early season injury that sidelined star forward Ron Slay for most of the season. Eight of Tennessee's losses were by a combined 19 points, with four losses being traced to a foe hitting a 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation. Peterson opens 2002 practice on Oct. 12.
