It was announced on Tuesday that Kentucky Football coach Mark Stoops would receive a contract extension through the 2018 season and a pay increase for the final two years of the new deal. Per USAToday:
quote:

Stoops' initial contract was set to expire on Dec. 31, 2017. His new one runs out June 30, 2019, so he has five seasons remaining on the deal. He will make $2.1 million this season, $2.2 million next and $2.3 million in 2016 – all part of the original contract – but his pay for the 2017 season has been bumped from $2.4 million to $2.5 million and he'll get $2.65 million for the added year, a UK spokesman said.
In Stoops only season as the Wildcats head coach, he lead the team to a 2-10 record last year. Prior to coaching at Kentucky, he served as defensive coordinator at Arizona from 2004 to 2009, and Florida State from 2010 to 2012.
