Minnesota gives Pitino $400K annual raise, 2-year extension

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota has finalized a two-year contract extension for coach Richard Pitino through the 2020-21 season, including a $400,000 raise.

The university released the details Tuesday, months after the terms were agreed to while Norwood Teague was the athletic director. Pitino, who finished his second year as coach of the Gophers, will now make $1.6 million annually. His $500,000 base salary stayed the same; his supplemental compensation was bumped up from $700,000 to $1.1 million.

Pitino is still well within in the bottom half of the Big Ten, in terms of money being made by the men's basketball coaches in the conference.
