As reported Tuesday, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops did reach the $5 million salary mark on Wednesday.

But the University of Oklahoma Board of Regents didn’t stop there.

They amended his contract and Stoops, who is entering his 16th season in Norman, Oklahoma, will top the $6 million mark by 2019.

Stoops will receive $5.25 million in 2014, Jason Kersey of NewsOK.com reported, and with raises, that total will reach $6.15 million in 2019.

Stoops is 160-39 in 15 seasons with the Sooners and is the school’s all-time winningest coach. He won the BCS title in 2000 and in the championship game in 2008.
