MADISON, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin Athletic Board announced on Friday contract extensons for football coach Paul Chryst, along with three others.
Following a 10-3 inaugural campaign, Chryst received a one-year contract extension on top of his previous five-year agreement, bringing him to an end date of Jan. 31, 2021. Chryst overcame an inexperienced offensive line and tattered recruiting relationships to lead the Badgers to a 23-21 Holiday Bowl win over USC.
Wisconsin volleyball coach Kelly Sheffield (Jan. 31, 2020), women’s soccer coach Paula Wilkins (Jan. 31, 2019), and men’s soccer coach John Trask (Jan. 31, 2018) also received additional time onto their current contracts.
According to a recent database search, salaries for the coaches are as follows:

Paul Chryst | $400,000 annually
Kelly Sheffield | $205,746 annually
John Trask | $137, 512 annually
Paula Wilkins | $123, 557 annually
