Southern Miss extends Bower pact through '09


HATTIESBURG — Southern Mississippi coach Jeff Bower has agreed to a two-year extension, keeping him on the sideline through the 2009 season.

Terms of the extension were not available late Wednesday.

Bower, a former Southern Miss quarterback, capped his 15th season coaching the Golden Eagles last month by beating Arkansas State in the New Orleans Bowl. He is the longest-tenured football coach in Southern Miss history and the dean of coaches in Conference USA.

Bower has led Southern Miss to 12 straight winning seasons and is a three-time C-USA coach of the year. With a record of 103-72-1, he is the second-winningest coach in school history, trailing only Thad "Pie" Vann.
