Nebraska's Bo Pelini gets raise, extra year

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has been given a small bump in salary and has had an extra year put on his contract, the Omaha World-Herald reports.

Pelini's annual pay increased from $2.775 million to $2.875 million under a revised agreement he signed last year. The Huskers also extended his contract through 2016 so that it remains a five-year deal.

Pelini is 38-16 at Nebraska, winning at least nine games in each of his four years. The Huskers went 9-4 in their first season of Big Ten play last year. But as any Nebraska fan can tell you, Pelini has yet to win a conference title or take his team to a BCS game. The Huskers spoke openly this spring about contending not just for those goals but also a national title.
