"They're ready to continue moving forward with [improving] their facilities, and they're moving into the new Big 12 Conference," he said. "I think that really will be challenging.

Massimino will receive $350,000 a year for five years to leave UNLV, pending almost certain approval by the Nevada Board of Regents on Wednesday.

Mike Holmgren, the San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator, became coach of the Green Bay Packers Saturday. Holmgren, 43, signed a five-year, $2.5-million contract.

The name is Shula, as in coaching dean Don Shula. Now it also means the youngest coach in the NFL and sets the stage for the NFL's first father-son matchup the next time the Cincinnati Bengals play the Miami Dolphins. The Bengals on Friday chose David Shula as their new coach, making Don Shula's 32-year-old son the youngest coach in league history. Shula succeeds Sam Wyche, whose eight-year tenure ended Tuesday.

Coach Steve Lavin and UCLA reached an agreement on a new contract, the same day the school also announced an impending new deal for its women's coach, Kathy Olivier. Lavin got a six-year package with a rollover clause and an annual base salary of $578,000. The rollover clause means he will always have a six-year contract, which provides long-term financial security for Lavin and the chance for him to use that stability as a tool in recruiting.

UCLA and Coach Steve Lavin continue to work toward a new long-term contract, with the possibility that the deal could be completed this week. They are believed to be discussing a package that will be for five or six years and will include the prized rollover clause, meaning Lavin would always have that much time left on the contract, providing not only job security but also a sense of stability to show during recruiting.

Not much was expected in August when Alvin Gentry was named coach of the Clippers, considering he began his tenure with a roster of five players under 21. But after leading the Clippers to a 31-51 record--including victories in 13 of their final 16 home games--and more than doubling their victories from the previous season, Gentry was rewarded Thursday when the team picked up the option for the final two years of his four-year contract.

Winning baseball comes down to three things: pitching, pitching and pitching. The Dodger-related news from Wednesday just happened to help the team in three departments: pitching, pitching and pitching. They signed Andy Ashby. They brought back former pitching coach Dave Wallace. And they still have a chance to re-sign Darren Dreifort. That's more than a good start. It's a Maurice Greene-style jump from the blocks.

Laker owner Jerry Buss, careful to say that all personnel will be evaluated after the playoffs, gave a strong indication Sunday that Del Harris will return next season and that the fate of his oft-maligned coach will not depend on whether the team advances beyond the second round. Buss stopped short of squashing all speculation that Harris will likely be fired if the Lakers don't at least reach the Western Conference finals, marking a playoff improvement over last season.
