NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops' salary will jump to $5.25 million for the upcoming season.
The new figure was approved by the school's Board of Regents. The total is up from about $5 million last season.
Stoops' base salary will remain $325,000. He receives $700,000 for staying at Oklahoma. His income from private funds will increase from $3,725,000 to $4,025,000.
Defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, Bob's brother, got a raise, too. His salary increased to $850,000 for next season, up $200,000.
Oklahoma went 11-2 last season to take Stoops' career record to 160-39. The Sooners defeated Alabama 45-31 in the Sugar Bowl after last season to position itself as one of the favorites to contend for the National Championship in 2014. Stoops would receive a $275,000 bonus for winning the title.
