Missouri is giving head coach Gary Pinkel a new deal, reports have said.

According to PowerMizzou.com, sources have said that a deal will be in place shortly. It has to be approved by University of Missouri bureaucrats before it can be fully announced.

The report said that the deal will propel Pinkel into the $3m-per-year bracket.

It added:”His current contract, signed in April 2011, pays him a base salary $2.35 million annually and was set to run through the 2017 season. Pinkel earned an additional $300,000 in incentives during the 2013 season. The length of the new deal is unknown at this time.

The deal would provide stability for Pinkel and the University of Missouri. Pinkel is one of the lowest-paid head coaches in the SEC.

Last year Missouri won the SEC East, but lost the SEC Championship Game to Auburn. They won the Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma State 41-31.
