Regents approve contracts for Wisconsin coaches

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents has approved contracts for incoming football coach Gary Andersen and his offensive and defensive coordinators.

Andersen will be paid $10 million over five years. He'll make $1.8 million in 2013, and then get $100,000 raises in each of the next four years.

The regents on Friday also approved salaries for offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. Each received a two-year deal worth $480,000 per year. That's $215,000 more than each of their predecessors made last season.

Andersen left Utah State to replace Bret Bielema, who left last month to become the head coach at Arkansas.
