It looks as though Tucson will have Rich Rodriguez to kick around until 2019.  The University of Arizona and the Wildcats head coach have come to an agreement on a contact extension that will go through the 2019 season. This is pending approval by the Arizona Board of Regents.

Arizona and RichRod came to terms to a two-year extension agreement that raises his base salary to $1.9 million. That is on top of $500,000 that he receives for what are described as "peripheral duties" such as TV and radio appearances, and additional incentives, which include $1 million should he win a National title as the Wildcats' head coach.

Rodriguez has gone 16-10 in his two season at Arizona, including wins in the 2012 New Mexico Bowl against Nevada, and the 2013 AdvoCare V100 Bowl against Boston College.
