Memphis coach Mike Norvell on Tuesday signed a contract extension to remain at the school.
So excited about the future of Memphis Tiger football and to announce that I have signed an extension to continue to lead this great program! Thank you to @UofMemphisPres Tom Bowen and Board of Trustees for allowing me the opportunity #StripeEmUp #TigerFam #CLIMB #Grateful pic.twitter.com/vE7YLf0DuG

Details of the agreement aren’t yet known, but Memphis athletic director Tom Bowen told ESPN that he had been working on the deal since Norvell led the Tigers to a win over UCLA on Sept. 16.
Norvell is 18-7 in two seasons with Memphis and guided the team to an AAC West division title. Memphis fell to UCF in double overtime Saturday in the AAC championship game.
He received a one-year contract extension from Memphis in April that increased the salary pool for his assistants. Norvell earned $1.86 million this season at Memphis.
