10:14 AM ET 10.14 | Athletic Director Oliver Luck told the Daily Mail the school and Bob Huggins are redoing the contract they signed after the 2008 season. That was for 11 years and $27.5 million overall, including $2.3 million for the upcoming season. Luck would not reveal the details, but said they're "looking at adding to both the length and the compensation." Luck said the contract should be finished before the end of the year.

No college coach should ever be paid that amount of money for any sport. Why do they need to pay him more if they already have him signed to a contract?
