COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M University is rewarding football coach Kevin Sumlin with a raise of $1.1 million for guiding the Aggies back to national prominence in his first season.

The Dallas Morning News reports Thursday that Sumlin's salary jumps to $3.1 million a year.

The university announced last month the two sides had agreed to a contract extension and raise, but it wasn't until Tuesday that the agreement was finalized and his new salary revealed.

Sumlin is under contract through 2017.

He's eligible for a variety of bonuses, such as $300,000 for advancing to the national championship game and $400,000 for winning the game.

The Aggies are coming off a blockbuster 2012 campaign in which they went 11-2, won the AT&T Cotton Bowl and quarterback Johnny Manziel won the Heisman Trophy.
