Louisiana-Monroe coach Berry gets new 4-year deal

The SportsXchange

After leading Louisiana-Monroe to a school-record eight wins this past season, head coach Todd Berry has received a new four-year contract, the school announced Friday.

No terms were announced, but presumably he received a raise from his 2012 salary of $250,000 in 2012, the lowest of any FBS head coach included in the USA Today's salaries database.

"I am excited about the opportunity to continue my coaching career at ULM," said Berry in a statement. "I am appreciative of the university's efforts to make our program better and we are doing our part as we continue to strive to be strong both on and off the field."

Monroe finished 8-5, including a victory over Arkansas, an overtime loss to Auburn, a five-point loss to Baylor and a 45-14 loss to Ohio in the Independence Bowl.

Berry, 52, has a 17-20 record in three seasons at Louisiana-Monroe.
