PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State coach Paul Wulff is getting quite a raise from his last job at Eastern Washington.

Wulff has finalized his five-year contract at Washington State and will make $600,000 a year with $200,000 in base pay, $50,000 deferred and $350,000 in collateral funds for media duties.

Wulff's predecessor, Bill Doba, received a guaranteed $500,000 at Washington State. Washington coach Tyrone Willingham makes $1.43 million a year.

Wulff also has incentives for team academic performance, coach of the year honors and bowl appearances. If Washington State makes a BCS bowl or the Rose Bowl, Wulff will receive $75,000. He'll get $100,000 if the Cougars win the national title.

Wulff earned about $100,000 as head coach at Eastern Washington. He was hired by Washington State on Dec. 11.
