Florida head football coach Will Muschamp has been given an annual pay raise of $250,000 on a contract that runs through 2017, boosting his annual salary to just under $3 million, according to the Sporting News.

The Gators confirmed the move Friday.

Muschamp is now the seventh highest-paid coach in the SEC, behind Alabama's Nick Saban, LSU's Les Miles, South Carolina's Steve Spurrier, Georgia's Mark Richt, Arkansas' Bret Bielema and Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin. Bielema is entering his first season with the Razorbacks after leaving Wisconsin and Sumlin is starting his second year with the Aggies.

In two years with the Gators, Muschamp has tallied a 18-8 record, with one bowl win. Florida reached as high as No. 3 in the AP Top 25 this season with a 7-0 record before losing to Georgia.
