The Florida Gators have rewarded football coach Jim McElwain and men's basketball coach Mike White with one-year extensions, the school announced Friday. The extensions also include a raise as well as a significant performance-bonus increase. "Both Coach Mac and Coach White have done a phenomenal job of leading our programs, and we are looking forward to having them lead the Gators for years to come," Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin said. "As much as both have won games and provided a lot of great memories for our fans and stability for the programs they lead, they have both had a huge impact on the development and personal growth of the athletes they coach." McElwain, 55, has led the Gators to a 19-8 record and two SEC East titles since arriving in Gainesville. His new deal, which runs through 2022 season, includes a $200,000 raise to $4.48 million, which ranks fifth among SEC coaches. He also got a significant bump in potential bonuses, jumping from a maximum of $450,000 annually to $825,000. Winning a national championship would now pay McElwain $400,000 instead of $250,000, and he can earn up to $100,000 annually (previous high was $4,000) for his team's academic performance.
