Kentucky: With their win today over Louisville (7th win of the season), Mark Stoops' contract is automatically extended one year (now under contract through June 2026). The extension is worth $6.25 million per Steve Berkowitz of USA Today (with $4.7 million of that guaranteed).

UConn: UConn finished their season 2-10 today with a 49-17 loss to Temple. Randy Edsall "picks up at least $6,000 in bonuses...they scored first, led at halftime and had better 3rd-down conversion rate" tweets Steve Berkowitz.

Missouri: Missouri plans to use the Parker search firm.

Old Dominion: A look at the Old Dominion job.

Indiana: With their win over Purdue today to get them to 8 wins on the year, Tom Allen is set to collect a $100,000 bonus, per Steve Berkowitz. Allen has collected $300,000 in bonuses this season.
