Mike London wins 2-year contract and raise
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Virginia football coach Mike London has won a two-year contract extension and a raise, increasing his annual salary to $2.1 million.
News of the contract restructuring came Friday from Atlanta, where London is preparing the Cavaliers for their first bowl appearance since the 2007 season. Virginia faces Auburn in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Saturday.
The two-year addition will extend London's contract through 2016.
The raise increases his salary by $400,000 annually. London's extension also includes a longevity bonus effective January 2015.
Virginia athletics director Craig Littlepage said the assistant football coaches on London's staff will also see their pay increase.
He said contract changes are critical to maintaining the program's momentum.
London was named the Atlantic Coach Conference's coach of the year after leading the Cavaliers to an 8-4 record.
