Oklahoma regents voted Monday to give Bob Stoops a new contract that would keep him as the Sooners coach through 2018 and pay him $34.5 million over the next seven years.
Stoops got a bump in his annual salary and a handful of bonuses
that will reward him for staying in Norman each June - after the
coaching carousel has usually run its course.
The contract calls for Stoops to make $5.15 million in salary
and bonuses over the final three years of the deal.
He was already one of the highest-paid coaches in the country,
making $30 million over the course of a previous seven-year deal
approved in 2009.
