K-State has rewarded baseball head coach Brad Hill for a Big 12 championship season with a five-year contract that will last through the 2018 season.
Hill’s base salary will increase from $220,000 to $265,000 in 2013-14, and with retention incentives Hill is guaranteed $1.735 million over the life of the contract. The contract’s average compensation is $292,000 over that five year period.
Hill led the Wildcats to a program-best 45 wins and the first ever Super Regional in K-State history this past season. The Wildcats won a Big 12 championship along the way, their first conference title in 80 years.
“The support we have received at K-State since the day my family and I arrived has been second to none, including the last few years under John Currie,” Hill said in a statement. “The rise of the program is centered on the players and coaching staff, both current and former, that have dedicated themselves to K-State Baseball. I am also thankful for the contributions of those who laid the groundwork for this program to be successful, especially Mike Clark’s hard work during his 17-year tenure, as well as Bob and Betty Tointon and John Allen.”
Hill is a two-time Big 12 coach of the year and has led the K-State baseball program to it’s only four NCAA Regional appearances in school history.
