MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State has rewarded baseball coach Brad Hill for the best season in school history with a new contract that will guarantee him $1.735 million over the next five years.

The deal includes an average compensation of $292,000 and retention incentives of $125,000 if he remains coach through the 2015 season and $150,000 through the life of the contract. The new contract replaces a five-year pact Hill signed after the 2010 season, and it includes additional pay for appearances in the Big 12 championship and NCAA tournament.

The Wildcats won a school-record 45 games last season and their first regular-season league title in 80 years. They advanced to the super regionals, where they were eliminated by Oregon State one game shy of the College World Series.
