New Mexico coach gets $5.7M, 6-year contract

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) New Mexico men's basketball coach Craig Neal has agreed to a new six-year, $5.7 million contract after leading the Lobos to the NCAA tournament in his first season at the helm, the school announced Monday.

Neal, who took over after Steve Alford left for UCLA before last season, was already under contract through 2020, so the deal doesn't extend the length but is "essentially" a pay increase, New Mexico athletics spokesman Matt Ensor said.

New Mexico had signed Neal to a contract extension in March.
