Earlier today, the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors approved a new five-year contract for Ragin’ Cajuns head football coach Mark Hudspeth.

Hudspeth had four years remaining on the contract he signed when he was hired in December of 2010.  That deal paid Hudspeth $350,000 a year, including a base salary of $175,000.

The base salary remains the same in the new contract, but the annual value of the contract improves to $750,000 a year.  Hudspeth can also earn as much as $105,000 a year in incentive bonuses, based on the team’s performance, both on the field and in the classroom, and for attendance at UL games.
