BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Forget about gender equity at Bowling Green.

Women's basketball coach Curt Miller received a contract extension through 2013 that will pay him more than men's basketball coach Louis Orr and football coach Gregg Brandon.

Athletic director Greg Christopher said Wednesday that Miller will make $160,124 a year, exactly $124 dollars more than Orr, who was hired last week.

The Falcons became the first Mid-American Conference women's team to reach the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament last season, finishing 31-4. Miller is 124-60 in six seasons and has won the regular season and conference tournament titles the past three years.

"Curt and his staff have done a remarkable job and we intend to maintain the program at the elite status in the MAC," Christopher said.
