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: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.
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.
