Jamieson's contract had been scheduled to conclude at the end of the current 2012-13 season, leaving room for speculation that his job security was depended on performance in the Tigers' first year in the tough Southeastern Conference.
But the AD apparently believes that the coach who led his team to the Big 12 Tournament title in 2012 deserves more of a running start in the SEC.
