Houston Extends Head Coach Tony Levine

Houston head football coach Tony Levine signed a new five-year contract keeping him at the school through the 2018 season.

Levine, who enters his third year as head coach at Houston and his seventh season with the program, has agreed with the University on a contract that will keep him with UH through the 2018 season. The new agreement replaces the original five-year agreement with Levine signed prior to the 2012 season.

Levine also received a pay raise that will bump his salary to $925,000 a season.

So the contract extends for one season and raises Levine's salary by $125,000 per year.

Levine took over the program at the end of the 2011 season, when Kevin Sumlin left to take the head coaching job at Texas A&M. Levine is 14-12 overall in his two seasons in Houston.
