Memphis keeps his coach in the middle of an ever-changing training carousel.
On Tuesday, Tigers coach Mike Norvell announced on Twitter that he had signed a new extension to stay with the program. The name of Norvell had been related to the work of Arkansas, which is nearing its end to its search for coaches with the name of the SMU trainer, Chad Morris, emerging as the favorite.
"I am very excited about the future of Memphis Tiger football and announce that I have signed an extension to continue leading this great program!" Norvell tweeted. The details of the Norvell contract have not yet been published publicly, but the Commercial Appeal reports that Norvel signed a "five year contract until the 2022 season with a value of $ 13 million."
Norvell earned $ 1.86 million in 2017, according to the coaching database of USA Today .
Norvell has a record of 18-7 in two seasons with Memphis, including 10-2 this year with an appearance in the American Athletic Conference title game. The Tigers were rematched against UCF, falling just short 62-55. They will play the state of Iowa aton December 30.
