Marshall University has extended coach Doc Holliday through the 2018 season, the school announced Monday

Holliday has coached the Thundering Herd for four seasons. The extension will not increase Holliday's $175,000 base salary or $425,000 supplemental salary, but will add incentives worth up to $145,000. Potential incentives include $30,000 for each bowl appearance and each conference championship. 

In 2013, Marshall went 10-4 (7-1 in conference) and lost to Rice in the Conference USA championship game, 41-24. The Herd capped its season with a 31-20 win over Maryland in the Military Bowl. 

RICKMAN: Questions you (probably) won't hear at media days

Holliday is 27-24 overall since taking the Marshall job, including a 20-12 mark in conference play.
