ULM’s Todd Berry lands new contract

Following a historical season at Louisiana-Monroe, the football program’s leader is being rewarded for his efforts.

ULM announced Friday that head coach Todd Berry has received a new four-year contract.  No financial particulars on the deal, which was approved Friday by the University of Louisiana system’s Board of Supervisors, were released.

Berry earned $250,000 in 2012, the lowest of any FBS head coach included in the USA Today‘s salaries database.

“I am excited about the opportunity to continue my coaching career at ULM,” said Berry in a statement. “I am appreciative of the university’s efforts to make our program better and we are doing our part as we continue to strive to be strong both on and off the field.”

Berry guided the Warhawks to a school-record (at the FBS level) eight wins in 2012 as well as taking the school to its first-ever bowl game.  Easily the highlight of the season was the upset of then-No. 8 Arkansas on the road in ULM’s opener — “The Shock in Little Rock.”

ULM followed that up with a three-point overtime loss at Auburn and a five-point loss to Baylor before winning seven of their last nine games.

The 52-year-old Berry completed his third season at ULM, posting a mark of 17-20 overall and 13-11 in Sun Belt Conference play.

“Coach Berry has done an outstanding job building a program the right way both on the field of play and in the classroom,” said Bobby Staub, ULM’s athletic director.  “We’re excited about the opportunity for sustained success and his commitment to that end.  This new agreement is structured in such a way that it rewards success and longevity which will be made possible through private revenue streams. This is indeed an exciting day for the Warhawk family.”

    ULM was a tough team this past season! They should have knocked off Auburn on the Plains. Overall good season for this team. Coach deserves a hefty raise IMO.

    Glad to see the guy got a raise after a solid season, but contracts in college athletics aren’t worth the paper they are printed on.

    Would have loved to have seen ULM-La Tech in the Indy Bowl, but nooooooo. The La Tech AD screwed the pooch on their bowl game.
