MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -Kansas State football coach Ron Prince signed a five-year contract through 2012, receiving a vote of confidence from school administrators after the team struggled to a disappointing finish last season.
Prince's base salary will be $143,000 with a total guaranteed package of $1.1 million, which includes compensation from endorsements and personal appearances, the university said Thursday. Prince could also earn up to an additional $950,000 per year in performance-based incentives.
``We are pleased with the direction of our football program,'' athletics director Bob Krause said in a statement. ``He has a plan in place and is right on course with that plan.''
Prince took over after the retirement of Bill Snyder and led the Wildcats to a bowl game in 2006. But Kansas State lost four straight to finish 5-7 last season, including an embarrassing 73-31 defeat at Nebraska, and many already were wondering how much longer Prince would last.
``I am very appreciative of the commitment that the university has shown,'' Prince said in a statement. ``We feel that we are on schedule with our plan of building a fast, tough, strong and disciplined program and are looking forward to this season and many seasons to come.''
