Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Todd Graham and Arizona State agreed to a contract extension that will raise his annual salary by $300,000.

Arizona State University and head football coach Todd Graham have agreed on a one-year contract extension, according to Doug Haller of AZCentral.

According to Haller, the new extension will raise Graham's annual salary $300,000 to $2.7 million and the contract will now run through June 30, 2019. The extension will have to be approved by the Arizona Board of Regents on June 6.

Since arriving in Tempe in December of 2012, Graham has impressed both on and off the field. On the field, he has gone 18-9 in his two seasons at Arizona State. This past season, the Sun Devil won 10 games for the first time since 2007 and hosted the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Off the field, Graham has wowed just about everyone he has come in contact with. He has brought a sense of discipline to the program that can be seen on and off the field.

He has put an emphasis on the tradition at Arizona State and been able to bring many former Sun Devils, such has Jake Plummer and Frank Kush, back into the program. He also brought in a top 25 recruiting class in 2014 and has Arizona State off to a hot start in its 2015 class.

According to the Arizona Republic, Graham's salary will increase by $100,000 on January 1, 2015 and again on January 1, 2016. Graham's annual salary will increase by $50,000 each January after that.
