Scott Stricklin Signs Six-Year, $1.8 Million Extension

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Fresh off a College World Series trip, Kent State is payin' their coach.

This is possibly an obvious thing to do. After he gets you to the College World Series for the first time in school history and helps knock off the No. 1 overall seed, give your coach some extra green.

Kent State announced a six-year, $300,000 annual extension for Scott Stricklin along with plans to improve their home park, Olga Mural Field, with things such as lights for night games. It's not a sure way to keep him in Kent State forever (another program can still try to hire him away, and they rightly should try) but it's a great way to try to keep him in the Flashes program. His last extension was in 2010 and ran through the 2014 season.

I don't have MAC baseball coaching salary information on hand, but I can bet that's the richest one in the conference. And by comparison, KSU paid Darrell Hazell the exact same amount in 2011.
