HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Marshall has extended the contract of coach Doc Holliday two years and raised the payouts for the incentives in the deal.

Holliday is 27-24 at Marshall and coming off a 10-4 season. His base salary of $600,000 will stay the same but his new deal increases his incentives to a total of $145,000 if they are reached.

Holliday will receive a $30,000 bonus for conference championships and $30,000 for each bowl appearance, both an increase of $10,000 from his previous contract.
