AUSTIN, Texas -- Gophers basketball coach Tubby Smith would receive an extra year on his contract by advancing to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament with a win over Florida on Sunday, March 24. Entering the tournament, Smith's future as Minnesota's coach was considered uncertain. But he received a $150,000 bonus for winning in the second round against UCLA on Friday, and he would receive $200,000 plus the one year added to his contract for winning in the third round Sunday.
