LEXINGTON, Ky — Two more Kentucky football coaches have signed contract extensions. New deals for quarterbacks coach Darin Hinshaw and offensive line coach John Schlarman were released Tuesday morning.
Hinshaw, who was hired in December 2015, was set to have his contract expire in June 2018. His newly signed extension will carry him into June 2020. With the extension came a raise from $400,000 per year to $500,000 per year.
“I’m very excited about it,” Hinshaw said after practice. “Again, want to be here for a long time. Very appreciative to Mark Stoops and everything that he does for me and my family. So, really looking forward to being here for a long time.”
Schlarman, one of two remaining members of Mark Stoops’ original coaching staff, signed an extension that will carry him through June 2019. Schlarman’s new deal will give him a raise from $300,000 per year to $375,000.
“I just really appreciate the support from Coach Stoops, Mr. Barnhart, Dr. Capilouto, everybody,” Schlarman said. “Obviously Kentucky means a lot to me. Knowing that we’re continuing to move forward and that we’re doing some things that are positive is very important. I’m excited, and I’m anxious to see where we go from here.”
Both Hinshaw and Schlarman officially signed their extensions on March 1.
Tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow also had the details of his new deal released.
Marrow signed an extension through June 2020. He’ll see an incremental raise from $425,000 to $450,000 to $475,000 over the next three years.
