Western Kentucky, Brohm agree to 4-year contract extension

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) Western Kentucky coach Jeff Brohm has agreed to a four-year contract extension through 2019 that boosts his base annual salary from $600,000 to $800,000.

Brohm is 20-7 in two years at WKU after last fall's 12-2 finish that included a Conference USA championship, second straight bowl win and No. 24 ranking. He's the only Hilltoppers coach to win 20 games his first two seasons and one of just four with double-digit victories.

Brohm's success led to him being mentioned as a possible candidate for other coaching vacancies, but he reiterated his desire to stay at WKU. Athletic director Todd Stewart said it was "imperative that we reward that loyalty" in Wednesday's statement announcing the deal.
