MSU gives Dantonio raise, extra year

East Lansing, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Michigan State gave football coach Mark Dantonio an annual raise of $1.65 million and added one year to the five-year contract he signed in 2011.

The amended contract was announced on Tuesday by the university and increases Dantonio's annual compensation from $1.99 million to $3.65 million.

Dantonio has led Michigan State to a school-record seven straight bowl games and is 64-29 in his seven seasons as coach.

The Spartans beat Stanford in the Rose Bowl last month -- the program's first BCS appearance -- and ended the season No. 3 in the Associated Press poll.

"Continuity has been and will continue to be an important ingredient for the sustained success of our football program," MSU athletic director Mark Hollis said in a statement. "The increased compensation isn't simply a reward for past performance but signifies our expectation for continued excellence."

Under the new six-year rollover contract, Dantonio's base salary was increased from $682,905 to $2 million per year, his supplemental income from $869,000 to $1 million and a contingent annual base from $200,000 to $286,000. He receives $204,917 in benefits.

He will continue to draw $100,000 from a shoe and apparel agreement and $50,000 in guaranteed performance incentives. He will have access to a private airplane for 25 hours of personal use.

Dantonio's assistant coaches received a total of $785,000 in raises.

The highest-paid among them, assistant head coach/defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, will be paid $904,583 per year.
