Minnesota coach Mason finalizes extension agreement
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota coach Glen Mason has a new contract extension in place and his sights on the Big Ten title.
Mason has agreed to a four-year extension worth $1.65 million annually, rewarding him for leading the Golden Gophers to six bowl appearances in nine years. His 32 wins over the past four seasons is the best four-year total at the school in 100 years.
It's quite a turnaround from 1997 when Mason inherited a woeful team that for many years was the Big Ten doormat.
