CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois football coach Ron Zook has received a one-year contract extension.
University trustees on Thursday approved the agreement keeping the fifth-year coach under contract with Illinois through January 2014.
The agreement does not include a raise. Zook makes just over $1.5 million a year.
Zook said in a news release he appreciated the confidence the university is showing in him.
Zook's last raise was in January 2008. That followed the Illini's surprise trip to the Rose Bowl and a 9-3 season.
The team went 5-6 last season and didn't play in a bowl game.
