Good sources in the Chancellor's Office have told Bruin Report Online that UCLA Head Men's Basketball Coach Steve Lavin has agreed to a multi-year, guaranteed contract with the school, set to commence after this year.

An official announcement of the new contract is planned to be made shortly after the current season has ended.

Although our sources did not reveal the terms of the contract, they indicated that Lavin would receive a "substantial" raise in pay above his present level of compensation.

When asked today about the reports of a new contract, Lavin declined to comment. He did, however, speak with confidence about the upcoming Pac-10 and NCAA Tournaments and about his plans for next year's team.
