BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) UAB coach Bill Clark has agreed to a five-year contract extension as he works to restart the program.
Athletic director Mark Ingram announced the deal on Tuesday. UAB gave Clark a three-year deal worth $500,000 annually in January 2014.
UAB didn't release the financial terms of the contract. The compensation committee of the Alabama system trustees is expected to approve the contract on Wednesday, along with Ingram's deal from May.
UAB shut down football, rifle and bowling shortly after the 47-year-old Clark led the Blazers to a 6-6 record in his debut season. University President Ray Watts announced plans to restore all three programs six months later.
UAB will resume playing football in 2017 and remain in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
