STOOPS may be in line for another raise

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops could be in line for another pay raise.

Oklahoma City television station KWTV reported Wednesday that university regents will soon approve a contract that would make Stoops the second-highest-paid college coach in the country.

The base package would be worth $1.97 million; if he met all incentives, it would be worth $2.4 million, according to the report.

Stoops received a raise during the 2000 season to $1.4 million. By meeting incentives, which included winning the Big 12 and national championships, he made $1,957,000.

Steve Spurrier of Florida is believed to be the highest-paid college coach, at $2.1 million per year.

The Daily Oklahoman reported in late January that university officials had been working on restructuring Stoops' contract since Oklahoma's national championship victory over Florida State in the Orange Bowl.

The regents' next scheduled meeting is June 19-20 at Cameron University in Lawton.
