After leading the Arizona Wildcats to an 8-5 record in his first season, Rich Rodriguez received a raise Thursday of almost a quarter-million dollars, not counting bonuses and a new retention fund.

The Arizona Board of Regents approved the $225,000 base salary increase and one-year contract extension for the football coach during its meeting in Phoenix.

Rodriguez’s base salary of $1.23 million comes entirely from athletic revenue and not from donations or university funds.

He makes another $495,000 for “peripheral duties,” such as radio and television appearances and speaking engagements. He also receives $300,000 of his non-university funded pay from Nike and IMG, the UA’s sports marketing arm.
