NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents approved a two-year extension to football coach Bob Stoops’ contract Thursday afternoon.
The action, which extends Stoops’ contract through the 2020 season, includes no pay raise or other changes to Stoops’ current deal, an OU spokesman confirmed.
Stoops, 52, is set to earn $4.55 million this year, his 15th as the Sooners’ coach. Regents last extended his contract in September 2011, when he agreed to a seven-year deal worth $34.5 million before bonuses.
With annual stay bonuses, Stoops’ annual salary was already set to increase to $5.15 million for the 2016-18 seasons.
Stoops has compiled a career record of 152-37, with eight Big 12 championships and the 2000 national title.
He’s one of four coaches in OU history to win at least 100 career games, and is only six wins from surpassing Barry Switzer as the Sooners’ all-time winningest coach.
If Stoops stays in Norman through the end of his newly-extended contract, he’ll tie Bennie Owen as the longest-tenured OU football coach with 22 years on the job.
