In February, UCF athletic director Tom Jurich announced a five-year contract extension that will pay him $7.5 million.
UCF will pay Jurich $3 million annually.
Jurich, who has a reputation for being hard to work with, took the $7 million deal as a compliment, but the financial aid extension wasn’t the only thing he received in February.
A few weeks earlier, the athletic department had extended a $1.5-million contract that it had previously offered to Jurich.
That deal had been contingent on UCF being in compliance with NCAA rules.
That agreement, though, expired on January 1, and Jurich has yet to agree to renew it.
UCFs athletic director says he has received an extension to his five-yr.
deal with the school, but doesn’t know when.
The extension, which was announced on February 4, is in the form of a two-year extension.
It expires at the end of May and will pay UCF an average of $1,065,000 annually.
UC FAFs chief financial officer, Joe Sacco, told New York that UCF was “very pleased with our extension,” adding that the university was “not in a position to speculate on when that extension will expire.”

(USATSI) The extension, he added, “is a significant increase” over the $1 million that UCFs previous contract with Jurich expired.
UCFS athletic director Joe Saucier said in a statement that he was “excited to extend our commitment to the UCF family.
We look forward to welcoming Jurich to UCF, and to continuing to work closely with him to help create the best football program in the country.”
But while Jurich’s contract with UCFS may seem good on paper, it has some big problems.
For one, it doesn’t go into effect until after UCF plays its first home game in 2019.
That’s five years away, and the school still has to make decisions about the direction of the program.
For another, it comes as UCF has struggled to make headway on a number of recruiting classes and the university is in desperate need of a significant infusion of funds to continue its transition to a public university.
Jurichi has been in charge of UCF athletics since 2014, when he became UCF’s AD, and has overseen a slew of recruiting successes.
In his first year, UC Fafs football program added five first-team All-Americans and two first-round picks, while its men’s soccer team made the NCAA Tournament for the first time in more than 20 years.
The program is currently ranked No. 8 in the AP poll, No. 2 in the Associated Press and No. 6 in the coaches poll.
The UCF men’s basketball team has won two national championships and five state titles in its history.
“I know that there is a lot of interest out there, and I know that we’re doing a great job, but there are things that we need to do as well as we can to grow the program, and we have to do it in a way that keeps the academic commitment of the student-athletes,” Jurich said in January.
“I want to be a great teacher, but we have a lot to do.”

(UCF) “As I’ve said, we have some challenges in recruiting, but this is a great time to be at UCF.
There is an opportunity for us to be competitive for years to come, and there are other opportunities for us as well,” Jurichi said at the time.
“We can’t wait for our new coaches to be hired.
I’ve been in a very supportive environment.
We are excited to have Tom here, and he’s an awesome guy, a great person and I’m very excited to work together with him,” Sacco told NJ Advance Media.
“And we’ve all had a great relationship.
He is a leader on and off the court and has a great understanding of the university.
We have a great bond.
We’ve worked together and I think that’s going to be really positive for the program going forward.”
As for what UCF might look like as a football team, there are a number questions surrounding that too.
One is whether Jurich will keep the team’s current lineup intact.
The men’s roster is led by senior point guard Alex Gillett, who started just 11 games last season.
The women’s roster, which is led on the court by senior forward Carla Deering, is filled with several returning veterans who were part of the 2015 team.
