U of L football coach Charlie Strong has agreed to a 7 year contract extension that bumps his salary to $2.3 million annually through 2018.
Under his old deal, Strong got $1.6 million a year.
Strong was hired in December 2009 and led the Cardinals to its first winning season and first bowl game in three years in 2010.
But this year they are struggling with a young team and off to a 2-4 start.
Strong has also earned kudos for his work on the recruiting trail, as U of L signed one of its better classes in school history last February.
