Multiple reports have Texas agreeing to extend Rick Barnes' contract through 2019. That's a two-year addition to his previous agreement. Barnes, 60, went 24-11 last season and reached the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament with his seventh-seeded Longhorns. Coming into last season, there was some speculation over how secure Barnes' job was, given Texas missed the NCAAs the year prior and Barnes failed to land premier talent like he did for a seven- or eight-year stretch in previous seasons. Plus, there was a new AD, Steve Patterson.
