Arkansas won 21 games this season.

Heath will get $900,000 over the next three years. He was told of the decision in a meeting with athletic director Frank Broyles on Monday.  Heath replaced Nolan Richardson in 2003 after Richardson’s contract was bought out. The former Kent State coach won nine games his first year, 12 in 2004, 18 in 2005 and 20-plus each of the past two years.
