Report: Missouri, Gary Pinkel reach agreement on new contract
Rivals Missouri site, PowerMizzou.com, is reporting that Gary Pinkel has agreed to a new contract that includes an annual raise.
Missouri has reportedly reached an agreement with Gary Pinkel regarding a new contract for the Tigers' head football coach.
Rivals' Missouri site, PowerMizzou.com, is reporting that Pinkel, 61, has agreed on a new deal that will raise his salary to the $3 million mark. The school will not confirm anything regarding Pinkel's raise "at this time," but the deal is expected to be approved by the University of Missouri's Board of Curators on Wednesday.
The next Curators meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at University Hall on MU's campus. The meeting announcement includes an executive session for "consideration of certain confidential or privileged communications with university counsel, negotiated contracts and personnel matters."
The new contract is also expected to include raises for Pinkel's assistant coaches, PowerMizzou reported.
Pinkel signed his current contract, which pays a base salary of $2.35 million annually and runs through 2017, in April 2011.
Missouri's memorable 2013 season included an SEC East title and a Cotton Bowl victory against Oklahoma State. The Tigers finished the season ranked No. 5 in both major polls with a 12-2 record.
With the bowl victory against Oklahoma State, Pinkel broke Don Faurot's record for wins as Missouri's football coach. Pinkel holds a 102-63 record in 13 years with the Tigers and a 175-100-3 record in 23 years of college coaching.
