The state of Michigan gives Mel Tucker a $ 95 million 10-year contract, taking an aggressive move to keep a soccer coach who could potentially leave for the LSU or the NFL.

“I am honored to be part of the Spartan process today and for years to come,” Tucker tweeted Wednesday.

The 12th-placed Spartans (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) will complete the regular season against Penn State (7-4, 4-4) on Saturday at home. Nittany Lions coach James Franklin was given a $ 75 million 10-year extension on Tuesday.

Tucker’s contract makes him one of the richest college football coaches.

Only Nick Saban of Alabama, one of his mentors, who earns $ 9,753,221 a year, makes more annually, according to USA Today’s coach salary database.

Tucker’s 10-year contract puts him in a select company with two coaches with the same tenure: Dabo Sweeney of Clemson and Jimbo Fisher of Texas A&M. Swinney’s contract is worth $ 92 million, and Fischer’s deal will bring him over $ 9 million a year starting in 2022.

Tucker’s deal, which expires on January 15, 2032, will have a base salary of $ 5.9 million, additional compensation for media and personal appearances of $ 3.2 million, and a conditional annual bonus of $ 400,000. dollars.
