TAMPA — Athletic director Doug Woolard officially signed a five-year contract Tuesday to make Under Armour the outfitter of USF athletics, finalizing an agreement that has been in place since November.
Under Armour will pay USF $1-million over five years and will provide more than $1.8-million in uniforms and apparel to the football, baseball, softball, soccer, golf and tennis teams, as well as the athletic staff.
USF's football team, which started wearing Under Armour uniforms this fall, gets $25,000 from Under Armour if it plays in a BCS game, $50,000 if it plays in the national title game and $100,000 with a national title.
DONOVAN DEAL: Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said an agreement is "very close'' with basketball coach Billy Donovan, who still hasn't signed a six-year, $21-million extension that was announced in June 2007. A university spokesman said Donovan was paid $3.5-million last season based on the unsigned extension.
INDIANA RESPONSE DELAYED: The NCAA told IU to wait until Sept. 26 to respond to the latest allegation that the school failed to monitor the men's basketball program. The response originally was due today.
