Northern Arizona primed to keep making progress

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) Northern Arizona won just 10 games last season, yet made enough progress for athletic director Mike Marlow to keep coach Jack Murphy in place for the final year of his contract.

Murphy knows the upward trend will have to continue if he wants another contract after that.

"Once we sat, we kind of came to an understanding of you're going into the last year of your contract and got to perform," he said. "Not putting any wins or losses or any place in the standings on it, but you just have to perform."
