HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick and football coach John "Doc" Holliday have agreed in principle to terms that include six-year contracts and a raise.

The university didn't provide details Tuesday in a release, which said terms will be finalized over the next several weeks.

Hamrick has served as Marshall's athletic director since July 2009. The Marshall graduate was a starting linebacker for The Thundering Herd in 1978 and 1979.

Holliday's record at Marshall is 40-25 since being hired in December 2009. Marshall ended this season 13-1 and won its first Conference USA championship. The Thundering Herd defeated Northern Illinois in the inaugural Boca Raton Bowl.
