UCLA and head football coach Jim Mora agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2021 season, the university announced Tuesday, and he’s already probably the highest paid campus employee.

While officials didn’t disclose future salaries, Mora had a base annual salary last year of $3.35 million, making him the 25th highest-paid college football coach in the nation, according to USA Today.

In his first four seasons at UCLA, Mora has equaled the school record for most victories over a four-year span — 37.

Mora has led the Bruins to wins in 11 of their last 12 non-conference games, four consecutive bowl appearances, two school-tying 10-win seasons and more than 70 team and individual school records.

UCLA will open the 2016 season Sept. 3 on the road, taking on Texas A&M in College Station.
