The Arizona Board of Regents has approved a one-year contract extension and $200,000 raise to Arizona State head football coach Todd Graham's salary, reported Nick Krueger of Devils Digest on Thursday.

The raise will bring Graham's yearly earnings to $3 million.

According to The Arizona Republic, Graham is also eligible for bonuses based on the Sun Devils' on-field and academic performances. Graham will also receive a $100,000 salary increase on Jan. 1 of each year remaining on his contract through 2019.

Last year, Graham was the 33rd highest paid college football coach in country and the fifth highest paid coach in the Pac-12.

The Sun Devils are 2–1 this season after losing to Texas A&M to open the 2015 campaign, and subsequently defeating Cal Poly and New Mexico.

Arizona State will take on the USC Trojans on Saturday.
