Missouri football head coach Gary Pinkel has received a raise and contract extension through 2021, according KansasCity.com:
Pinkel, whose won more games than any other Tigers football coach at 113-66, will make $4.02 million per year, an increase from $3.2 million in annual guaranteed compensation that was approved by the MU Board of Curators.
The raise puts Pinkel among the top-five paid coaches in the SEC, according to media reports, behind Alabama’s Nick Saban ($7.16 million), Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin ($5 million), LSU’s Les Miles ($4.37 million) and Mississippi’s Hugh Freeze ($4.3 million). Only 11 football coaches nationally made $4 million in 2014, according to USA Today.
