MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Memphis coach Mike Norvell has tweeted that he has signed a contract extension with the Tigers.
Norvell tweeted on his verified Twitter account that he’s ”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.” His tweet didn’t reveal details of the extension, but The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal reported that Norvell had agreed to a five-year deal worth a total of $13 million.
