LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech made a formal contract offer today to coach Mike Leach, a five-year deal worth $12.1 million, according to media reports.
Leach is already signed through 2010, and this would extend him
to 2013. He could not immediately be reached for comment by The
Associated Press on Friday.

contract would pay Leach a total of $7 million.
Leach's agent, Gary O'Hagan, did not immediately reply to a
