AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Tom Herman's Texas Longhorns won 10 games for the first time in a decade. Now the school is giving him a guaranteed contract extension worth an extra $13 million.

University of Texas System regents on Thursday approved a two-year extension that runs through the 2023 season. The last two years are will pay Herman $6.5 million in 2022 and $6.75 million in 2023.

Herman, 43, took over Texas in late 2016 after three straight losing seasons under Charlie Strong. After a 7-6 finish in 2017, Texas went 10-4 in 2018 and played in the Big 12 championship game. A win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl gave the program 10 wins for the first time since the 2009 season when the Longhorns played for the national championship.
