LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas Tech coach Mark Adams has a new contract that includes a hefty pay raise and extends his deal through the 2026-27 season after leading the Red Raiders to the NCAA Sweet 16 in his first season as head coach.
The new contract was announced Tuesday by the school, just more than a month after Texas Tech finished with a 27-10 record. Adams was the AP Big 12 coach of the year after the Red Raiders were 18-0 at home and third in the Big 12 regular-season standings behind No. 1 seeds Kansas and Baylor - teams they beat at home.
Adams' total compensation will start at $3 million next season, and annual $50,000 increases will take that to $3.2 million in 2026-27. When Adams replaced Chris Beard last April he initially got a five-year contract and was scheduled to make $1.95 million plus incentives next season.
