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 guided Arizona to its first bowl win in 10 years last season, is 25-34 entering his sixth season at UA.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
