Marshall extends coach Doc Holliday through 2018

Monday July 14th, 2014

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.

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