Stoops would receive $1 million in new deal

University of Arizona football coach Mike Stoops would get more than a $300,000 pay raise and make $1 million this season as part of a proposed contract extension through 2013.

Under the deal – pending Arizona Board of Regents approval – Stoops would make an extra $100,000 per season, culminating with a $1.4 million salary in 2013.

He also could earn more through attendance, academic and victory incentives.

Stoops, 47, would receive a $500,000 base salary and $500,000 in “peripheral and other duties” for the 2009 season. His previous contract paid him $685,288 per year, including a $385,288 base salary.

Stoops, who took Arizona to its first bowl win in 10 seasons last year, is 25-34 entering his sixth season at UA.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
