Leach inks new deal

Texas Tech Head Coach Mike Leach has agreed to a three-year contact extension that will pay the Red Raiders' coach over $1 million per season through the 2008 season.

"I am pleased that Mike has signed an extension to his contract to coach the Red Raiders through the 2008 season," Texas Tech Director of Athletics Gerald Myers said. "Mike has done an outstanding job of building an exciting program for our students, alumni and fans. We are looking forward to many years of Red Raider football under Coach Leach and his staff."

Leach's tenure as head coach has seen the Texas Tech program set both attendance records and offensive records in the past four seasons. The record setting offense has led the Red Raiders to four straight bowl games, another Texas Tech record.
