Brown’s base salary will be $3.975 million annually.

This is a great decision from the Mountaineers. It’s an absolutely outstanding decision. Brown is a hell of a coach.

In the world of college football, when you find yourself an excellent coach, you don’t let him go anywhere. You keep him for as long as possible.

While winning at WVU isn’t super difficult or easy, Brown has kept the Mountaineers relevant and trending upward for the most part.

He also seems to do a nice job recruiting and making the brand’s presence felt nationally with how he handles the media.

All the way around, WVU fans can give the program two huge thumbs up for extending Brown.
