North Carolina State gave men's basketball coach Mark Gottfried a pay raise on Friday that makes him one of the highest paid coaches in the ACC, the school announced.

The new contract will pay Gottfried $1.95 million per year for the next six seasons.

His annual salary remains at $750,000, and his supplemental compensation was boosted from $450,000 to $1.2 million. That moved Gottfried from ninth to third in the ACC in annual guaranteed compensation, according to ESPN.com.
With an NCAA tournament berth by the Wolfpack last year, Gottfried automatically received a two-year extension through the 2017-18 season.
