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

Athletic director Mike Hamrick announced Monday that Holliday’s contract now runs through the 2017 season.

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 over his previous contract.
