South Carolina defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward earned a three-year contract and a $100,000 raise Thursday after the Gamecocks second straight 11-win season. The deal was approved by the school's board of trustees. Ward's contract runs through the 2015 season. His salary was increased to $650,000 following his first full season running the Gamecocks defense.
