Neuheisel Gets Extension

September 04, 2002|From Associated Press

Washington Coach Rick Neuheisel has agreed to a six-year contract extension, keeping him with the Huskies through 2008.

The university also gave him a $1.5 million loan, in addition to his annual university compensation of $1.2 million, Athletic Director Barbara Hedges said.

While Neuheisel, 41, will make semiannual interest payments at 5%, the $1.5 million is his to keep if he stays for the six years. If he leaves before Jan. 1, 2008, Neuheisel must repay the loan, plus pay an early departure penalty of $600,000.

That penalty was increased from the previous $100,000.
