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.
