SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY

New SIU men’s basketball coach Bryan Mullins could earn an extension of the second-richest contract in Saluki history after two good years, according to the deal. Mullins, 32, signed a five-year contract with his alma mater in April with a base salary of $475,000 a season. His contract is the second-richest in school history, below his former coach, Chris Lowery, who signed a seven-year extension worth more than $750,000 per season after taking SIU to the Sweet 16 in 2007. Under terms of his new deal, obtained by The Southern Illinoisan, Mullins and athletic director Jerry Kill would be required to meet and discuss an extension of one or more years after his second season if he has “comprehensive evaluations which show positive results of his yearly goals and objectives (as set forth by director).” Any extension would have to be approved by the SIU Board of Trustees. Mullins, the youngest coach in the Missouri Valley Conference, got $360,000 to hire his three assistant coaches, $110,000 more than former coach Barry Hinson. -Todd Hefferman, The Southern, Read More
