LOS ANGELES - UCLA coach Karl Dorrell, whose Bruins finished the season 7-6 but beat Southern California for the first time in eight years, has been given a one-year extension, putting him under contract through the 2011 season.
The 43-year-old Dorrell, who has a 29-21 record in four seasons at UCLA, signed a five-year contract in July that included an $850,000 salary and incentives up to another $505,000 annually.
His first contract in 2003 called for a $600,000 salary plus incentives.
"We are looking forward to an exciting and successful season in 2007," athletic director Dan Guerrero said in a statement. "With Karl solidifying his coaching staff, an experienced team returning and a terrific home schedule, we are poised to take the next step with our program."
