It may be a slow start for the Arizona State Sun Devils so far this new season, but coach Todd Graham continues to reap the benefits of his success at ASU in his first three years.
According to multiple reports, the Arizona Board of Regents approved a $200,000 raise for Graham Friday on top of his current salary that pays him $3 million per year and also keeps Graham under contract through 2019.
The Arizona Republic reported on a number of new bonuses Graham is also eligible for in his revised contract, including an additional $150,000 raise for a 10-win season.
Graham's contract extension was among a number of incentives ABOR awarded to university employees around Arizona Friday, including a $150,000 bonus for Arizona State University president Michael Crow.
Heading into Saturday's Pac-12 opener against the No. 19 USC Trojans, Graham has led the Sun Devils to a 30-13 record since 2012 and has reached a bowl game in all three seasons with ASU.
Though it seems Arizona State has raised Graham's salary a number of times to ensure his position over the years, it appears Graham doesn't seem interested in going anywhere else for awhile, despite his history of jumping schools. Graham reportedly invested $500,000 of his own money last year toward the university's ongoing renovations for Sun Devil Stadium.
