Harry How/Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) — Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio signed an amended contract agreement Tuesday that raises his pay from $1.9 million per year to $3.6 million annually.

The contract also extends Dantonio one year, meaning he will coach the Spartans for the next six seasons.

Dantonio has led the Spartans to a 64-29 record during his seven seasons in East Lansing. During that time, the team has made a school-record seven-straight postseason bowl appearances.

Dantonio led MSU to their first Rose Bowl victory since 1988 last season when they beat Stanford 24-20 in January. That win allowed the Spartans to finish No. 3 in the final polls — their highest ranking to end a season since 1966.
