As expected, Oklahoma basketball coach Jeff Capel has agreed to a raise and will continue as the Sooners' coach, according to a post this morning by the Tulsa World.
"I'm going to be at Oklahoma," Capel told the World. Capel also said that he has agreed to a contract extension and a raise from OU and will return next season. He didn't release details of the agreement.
"I don't like to talk money. I'll let Joe handle that," Capel said, referring to OU athletic director Joe Castiglione.
Capel attended the USBWA breakfast this morning where Blake Griffin was presented the Oscar Robertson Trophy as the national player of the year.
There has been no word yet from Oklahoma this morning on Capel's announcement, but he is expected to receive a raise that should put him on par with or slightly ahead of Missouri coach Mike Anderson, who recently agreed to a $1.55 million deal. Kansas' Bill Self ($3 million) and Texas coach Rick Barnes ($2.25 million) are the Big 12's highest-paid coaches.
