PULLMAN, WA - The higher ups at WSU know what kind of coaches they have in their football program, and took a step to make sure they stick around for a long time.

Washington State University has increased Head Football Coach Mike Leach's salary by $500,000, which now totals at $2.75 million per year.

In addition, Athletic Director Bill Moos has bumped up assistant coach's pay to a $500,000 dollar pool. The biggest coach's assistant recipient has to be Defensive Line Coach, Joe Salave'a, who received a 57-percent pay bump up to $275,000.

Leach's raise now makes him the third highest paid coach in the Pac-12, only behind UCLA's Jim Mora and Washington's Chris Petersen. Though I'm sure no one was too worried, it looks like we will be seeing our WSU coach's around for a bit longer.
