COLUMBIA, SC (TheBigSpur.com) South Carolina athletics director Ray Tanner's contract was extended for two years and he was approved for a $50,000 a year raise by the board of trustees Friday.

"I'm extremely grateful for the support, the faith and the confidence from Dr. (Harris) Pastides and the board of trustees," Tanner said. "As all of you know, I love being at this university and I had the greatest job in college baseball for many, many years and now I have the greatest job as the director of athletics across this country. I'm very humbled and very appreciative of the opportunity to get an extension and to support our coaches and student-athletes."

Tanner's new contract features a $725,000 a year salary and will go into effect on July 2, 2014 and run through June 30, 2019.
