 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin signed a five-year contract Wednesday that will keep him with the Wildcats through the 2011-12 season.
Martin will get a base salary of $180,000 with a total compensation package of $760,000, which includes TV, radio and internet appearances, shoe and apparel sponsorships, and other services. The contract is retroactive to the 2007-2008 season.
Martin became Kansas State's coach in summer 2007, when Bob Huggins left the school after one season to coach at West Virginia, his alma mater. Martin became the second rookie coach in school history to lead his team to the NCAA tournament.
Kansas State went 21-12 under Martin. The Wildcats beat Southern California in the first round for their first NCAA tournament victory in 20 years, then lost to Wisconsin in the second round.
