USC men's basketball coach Darrin Horn is receiving a raise and a contract extension.
A revision to Horn's contract is on the agenda for Monday's meeting of the USC board of trustees. Several sources said Horn is expected to get a raise of $300,000, and the length of his deal will also be increased by an unknown amount.
Horn's current contract annually pays him $800,000 plus incentives. He is in the second year of a five-year deal he signed upon being hired before the 2008-09 season.
The proposed raise would still leave Horn in the lower half of SEC men's basketball coaches in terms of annual pay. Three coaches hired before this season all earn more, including Kentucky's John Calipari ($3.9 million), Alabama's Anthony Grant ($1.8 million) and Georgia's Mark Fox ($1.3 million).
Never miss a local story.
The Gamecocks went 21-10 in Horn's first season, making the postseason for the first time in three seasons. This season the injury-riddled team is 6-2.
