The new deal is worth $4.3 million per year, a $550k raise, and the contract has been extended through 2019. His old contract, which was through the 2017 season, was worth $3.751 million per year.
The new deal still has to be approved by the LSU Board of Supervisors, which will meet over the contract on Feb. 1.
During his eight years in Baton Rouge, Miles has compiled an 85-21 record, two SEC Championships, and one BCS National Championship.
ESPN has reported that the new contract also includes:
Miles’ compensation includes his base salary, pay from LSU’s private athletic foundation, radio, TV, Internet and public speaking appearances, along with an LSU-controlled fund that Miles can collect only if he stays at LSU for at least five years (for $750,000), or seven years ($1.05 million).
