OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze has a new contract that includes a one-year extension through 2017 and a raise to $3 million per season.

The school announced the terms Tuesday. Freeze's four-year contract is the longest allowed by Mississippi state law. His base salary was $2 million this season.

Ole Miss has a 7-5 record and accepted an invitation to the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn., where it will play Georgia Tech on Dec. 30.

Freeze's new contract includes an automatic $150,000 raise for each upcoming season. Also, the salary pool for the Ole Miss football staff will increase by $400,000.

''We are continuing to take steps in our journey, and our staff remains fully committed to the ultimate goal of returning championships to Ole Miss,'' Freeze said in a statement.

Freeze has a 14-11 record with the Rebels over two seasons after taking over a program that finished 2-10 in 2011.

Ole Miss added one of the nation's top recruiting classes in February. Several of those players - including defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche, receiver Laquon Treadwell, offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil and safety Tony Connor - were major contributors this fall.

Ole Miss is also in the midst of a major fundraising project that includes a $12.5 million renovation for the program's Manning Practice Facility. Future plans call for more seating in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium's north end zone and other renovations.

''In just two short years, coach Freeze and his staff have placed Ole Miss among college football's top rising programs,'' athletic director Ross Bjork said. ''Their hard work and devotion in all facets of the program have resulted in postseason berths, elite recruiting success, personal development of our student-athletes and a renewed energy throughout Rebel Nation.''
