Colorado offering Butch Jones big pay increase, according to report

Andy Lyons

Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones will reportedly be offered a five-year, $13.5 million contract Monday afternoon by the Colorado Buffaloes. The contract will also include extra incentives in the form of upgrades to the school's facilities.

The Colorado Buffaloes football team's coaching search could come to a close soon, as they are reportedly ready to offer University of Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones a $13.5 million contract in Boulder on Monday afternoon.

Colorado isn't the only school looking at Jones right now, with Purdue looking like a possible landing spot as well. Cincinnati has also reportedly spoken with Jones about re-doing his contract. His current contract with the Bearcats would keep him at Cincinnati until 2017.

Jones is scheduled to meet with Colorado officials, who will offer him a five-year deal that will include upgrades to Folsom Field, the Dal Ward Athletic Center and the team's practice facilites. Jones has had problems with Cincinnati regarding improvements to the facilities at the school and Nippert Stadium.

Jones has done a fine job with the Bearcats since taking them over in 2010. After a 4-8 record in his first year, he took them to the Liberty Bowl with a 10-3 record in 2011 and a 9-3 record in 2012.
