Chris Petersen is now the highest-paid coach in the Pac-12 Conference history. The Washington Huskies gave their head coach a three-year extension that runs through 2023.
Instead of making $4 million during the 2017 season, he’s going to make $4.875 million, according to Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel.
Petersen was expected to be paid the $4 million in the final two years of his initial five-year deal he signed with the school. This deal shows that he wants to be with the Huskies for the long haul.
He’s 27-14 in his first three-years in Seattle, Wash. he helped the Huskies to their first Pac-12 Conference Championship in December since 2000.
The Huskies were the first Pac-12 Conference team to appear in the College Football Playoff. They finished the season with a 12-2 record, ending their season on Dec. 32 in the CFP Semi-Final against the Alabama Crimson Tide.
