LEXINGTON, Ky. — University of Kentucky football coach, Mark Stoops, has agreed to a new contract with the team through June 2031.
Coach Stoops' new deal pays him $9 million a year, up from the $6,350,000 he is currently making. In the new contract, Stoops' buyout increases to $4.5 million if he leaves before July 2023.
This new contract was signed the day before Kentucky's loss to Vanderbilt a couple of weeks ago. Stoops' previous contract went through June of 2028, but included a clause which stated he would have a one-year extension if Kentucky won seven games in the season and a two-year extension if the team won ten games.
