MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents has approved contracts for incoming football coach Gary Andersen and his offensive and defensive coordinators.
Anderson will be paid $10 million over five years. He'll make $1.8 million in 2013, and then get $100,000 raises in each of the next four years.
The regents on Friday also approved salaries for offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. Each received a two-year deal worth $480,000 per year. That's $215,000 more than each of their predecessors made last season.
UW associate athletic director Justin Doherty says the contracts have all been approved but not yet signed.
Andersen replaces Bret Bielema, who left last month to become the head coach at Arkansas.
