RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State has given men's basketball coach Mark Gottfried a pay raise that makes him the third highest-paid coach in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The school said Friday its board of trustees approved a new contract for Gottfried that will pay him $1.95 million per year for six years.
His annual salary remains at $750,000, and his supplemental compensation was boosted from $450,000 to $1.2 million. That moved Gottfried from ninth to third in the ACC in annual guaranteed compensation.
N.C. State's appearance in the NCAA tournament last March triggered an automatic two-year extension through 2017-18 for Gottfried, who led the Wolfpack to 24 victories in his first season.
Athletic director Debbie Yow says Gottfried's ``competitive and recruiting success has accelerated our vision of excellence in an impressive way.''
