LSU athletic director Joe Alleva says football coach Les Miles is getting a raise and a contract extension.
Miles had a previously scheduled news conference on Wednesday pushed back an hour so Alleva and Miles's agent, George Bass, could finish work on the deal.
Alleva says details of the contract are still in the negotiation process and will be announced at a later date.
Miles previous contract paid about $3.75 million annually through 2017. He has not received a raise since 2008, though he has since received an extension and raises for assistants.
Miles is 85-20 at LSU since arriving in 2005, with one national title in the 2007 season and two BCS championship appearances. LSU's victory over Arkansas last Friday clinched Miles' fifth 10-win season with the Tigers.
Alleva had planned to address Miles' contract following the next bowl game appearance but he said the offer from Arkansas "accelerated the process a little."
