After 15 games at Arizona State, Todd Graham has compiled a record of 10-5, and he's also earned himself a raise and an extension in the process.

According to AZCentral.com, both Arizona State and Graham have agreed on a contract extension that will extend the coach's contract through the 2018 season. The extension still needs to be approved by the school's board of regents, but they're expected to do so on September 26.

Along with the extension Graham will also receive a raise. Graham is making $2.05 million for 2013, but that will go up to $2.3 million on July 1, 2014. Graham will then receive a $100,000 raise ever January 1 until 2017 when he'll receive a $50,000 raise each new year until the end of the contract.

Graham also has some bonuses worked into his deal that will see him get 50 percent of his salary should Arizona State win a national title or a 25 percent bonus should the Sun Devils win one of the major bowl games (Rose, Sugar, Cotton, Orange, Chick-fil-A or Fiesta).

While 10-5 at Arizona State, Graham has gone 59-34 in his eight seasons as a head coach, with stops at Rice, Tulsa and Pittsburgh before coming to Tempe.
