The University of Arkansas and Bobby Petrino have agreed upon a new seven-year contract that will extend through the 2017 season.

The new agreement will supersede the remaining four years of the original employment agreement and will run through December 31, 2017.

In his three seasons at Arkansas, Petrino has lifted the program to unprecedented levels of success including leading the Razorbacks to a 10-2 regular season and the program’s first berth in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) in 2010.

Arkansas will be making its first BCS bowl appearance on January 4, when the #8 Razorbacks take on #6 Ohio State Buckeyes in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, Louisiana. Petrino will become only the third coach in NCAA Football to lead two different teams to a BCS bowl game. In 2007, he led the Louisville Cardinals to a victory in the Orange Bowl.

As part of the new agreement, Petrino will receive an increase in his average annual compensation to a total of $3.36 million a year during the length of the agreement. The increase to Petrino’s compensation package will be paid with athletic department-generated revenues and private gift support and will not include any taxpayer dollars or student fees. The new agreement will also expand the non-compete clause in Coach Petrino’s current contract to include all Southeastern Conference institutions, rather than being limited to western division schools only.

Coach Petrino is excited about the new agreement. “I am excited to express my commitment to the University of Arkansas. Chancellor Dave Gearhart and Jeff Long have been tremendous in terms of their support and I appreciate the positive energy the fans have demonstrated. I look forward to continuing to dedicate myself to leading the Razorback football program.”

Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett has been named one of 10 finalists for the Manning Award, which is sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl and presented to the nation’s best quarterback following the bowl games.

The Manning Award was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in honor of the college football career accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. It is the only quarterback award that takes the candidates’ bowl performances into consideration in its balloting.

The Manning Award will be recognizing its seventh winner this year. Matt Leinert of Southern California was the first winner in 2005.

Mallett, who was a finalist for the award last season, has completed 242 of 364 passes for 3,592 yards and 30 touchdowns. He is the fourth quarterback in SEC history to throw for 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns in consecutive seasons and just the third to throw for more than 3,500 yards in back-to-back seasons. During his Arkansas career, he has set or matched 38 different school or stadium records. His 299.3 passing yards per game lead the Southeastern Conference and rank fifth in the NCAA, while his 30 touchdown passes lead the conference and rank sixth in the country, Mallett also leads the NCAA with five completions of 70 or more yards and four completions of 80 or more yards.

Mallett has thrown for at least 300 yards in an NCAA-high nine games this season, breaking his single-season school record from 2009 and extending his Arkansas career record to 14. Included was a 409-yard performance against Vanderbilt which broke the school record of 408 he put up in 2009. The Vanderbilt game was the fourth 400-yard outing of his career. Before the Texarkana, Arkansas native enrolled at the school, the Razorbacks had never had a 400-yard passer in a single-game.

The winner will be announced on Wednesday, January 19 and honored at a ceremony in New Orleans.
