Boise State has rewarded coach Leon Rice for posting consecutive 20-win seasons and getting the Broncos to the NCAA tournament last month. Athletic director Mark Coyle announced a contract extension and pay hike for the third-year coach Wednesday. Rice and the university have agreed in principle to a two-year extension and a $43,000 bump in pay next year, raising his 2014 salary to $482,110. The deal calls for a 3 percent annual raise through 2018. The Broncos finished 21-11 this season and earned the team's first ever at-large berth to the tournament. Hired in 2010, Rice has won 50 games faster than any coach in school history and the success of the team in the last two years has elevated attendance to its highest mark in more than a decade.
