Northwestern St. adds year to Peveto's contract

Natchitoches, LA (Sports Network) - Northwestern State has added the 2012 season to head football coach Bradley Dale Peveto's initial three-year contract.

Peveto was entering into the final year of that contact. He led the Southland Conference team to the fourth-best turnaround in Division I football in 2010, as the Demons finished 5-6 after going 0-11 in Peveto's first season in 2009.

NSU director of athletics Greg Burke announced that Peveto spurned a recent job offer with a $350,000 package at a BCS-level conference. The 2012 extension did not change the financial terms of Peveto's contract, Burke added.

The extension is subject to the approval of the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana system, which includes Northwestern State.
