The Texas A&M men’s athletics program tied with Indiana for second place in the Capital One Cup for 2012-13 sports year. UCLA was the men’s champion and North Carolina won the women’s competition. The award recognizes the nation’s top athletic programs. Texas A&M won the men’s outdoor track and field championship.

Florida State coach extended

Florida State men’s basketball coach Leonard Hamilton signed a contract extension that will ultimately pay him $750,000 more a year than he made under his previous agreement.

The Seminoles announced that Hamilton’s latest contract runs through 2016-17 season. The new contract, which was obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, could pay Hamilton up to $2.25 million in total annual pay by 2017.

Right now, that $2.25 million price tag would be the second-highest in the ACC. Only Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski makes more at $7.23 million in annual total pay.

A two-time ACC coach of the year, Hamilton led FSU to four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances from 2009-2012, a first for the program. In 2012, the team won its first ACC tournament championship when it beat perennial power North Carolina in the league title game.

Since his contract was amended in 2011, Hamilton has made $1.5 million each year in total pay. That total pay included his base salary of $205,000, which was paid by the university, and other incentives paid by the university’s athletic fund-raising group.
