The University of Minnesota Board of Regents held a special meeting Thursday morning to approve the Gophers football coach’s contract and did so in swift order. The Regents repeatedly praised Fleck’s coaching acumen, and when a vote was taken, there was no audible opposition to the contracts’s approval. Last week, Fleck signed the seven-year, $33.25 million contract, and then his Gophers proceeded to defeat then-No. 4 Penn State to improve to 9-0. Under terms of the new deal, if Fleck were to leave the Gophers before Dec. 31, 2020, he must repay the University $10 million. That number drops to $4.5 million the following year and $3 million in 2022. Fleck’s $3.6 million salary for this season, established under his previous deal, ranks 11th among 14 Big Ten coaches. He’ll make $4.6 million next year, which likely will rank in the conference’s upper half. -Joe Christensen, Star Tribune. Read More.
