STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien is getting a $1 million pay raise after a successful debut in Happy Valley.
O'Brien's deal when he arrived in January 2012 called for a base salary of $950,000. That's going up to $1.9 million starting July 1, according to contract terms released Thursday by the school.
Counting compensation for radio and television work and a Nike contract, O'Brien's total deal this year would be worth more than $3.2 million.
The base salary would go back down to $1.1 million in 2014, before a raise to $1.6 million in 2015.
O'Brien guided the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 season after the program was hit by NCAA sanctions for the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal and player defections weeks before the start of the 2012 season.
