New Contract Puts L. Smith Among Ten Highest-Paid Coaches
The contract extension that Lovie Smith signed with the Chicago Bears puts him among the league's 10 highest-paid coaches.
Smith's four-year extension runs through the 2011 season and is worth $22 million. That, combined with the one season he had left on his existing deal, means he'll make $23.45 million over the next five years.
Smith was the league's lowest-paid head coach this past season with a salary of $1.35 million. He led the Bears to the Super Bowl but talks between his agent, Frank Bauer, and the team were moving slowly until a series of conversations Wednesday culminating with an agreement late in the day.
