FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Fresno State has reached an agreement with coach Tim DeRuyter to extend his contract through the 2018 season.

The school announced Monday the terms of the letter of intent of the deal that will pay DeRuyter a base salary of $7.5 million for the next five years. DeRuyter can also earn performance bonuses that are expected to be worth between $500,000 and $700,000 a year.

The two sides still need to finalize the contract, but athletic director Thomas Boeh said he hoped the announcement will give stability during the upcoming recruiting period.

DeRuyter has led the Bulldogs to a 20-6 record in two seasons. He won the Mountain West title game this past season and was in the running for a BCS berth before a late-season loss to San Jose State.
