Pinkel receives contract extension/ pay increase

The winningest coach in Mizzou football history is being handsomely rewarded for his teams’ sustained success and will receive a raise which will bump his salary up from $3.2 million per year to 4.02 million.


Since 2007, the Missouri Tigers rank 5th nationally in total wins and the program’s five division titles are tied for most in the country during that time span. Pinkel was voted the SEC Coach of the Year in 2014 following a second consecutive SEC East Title. He is the 25th winninest head coach in FCS history and will now be the 10th coach in the SEC to hit the $4 million dollar mark. Pinkel’s latest extension would keep him in Columbia until 2021 at which point he would be 70 year old.
