Karl Dorrell and UCLA Agree on Extension

Feb. 6, 2007

UCLA head football coach Karl Dorrell and the University have agreed on a contract extension that runs through the 2011 season, athletic director Dan Guerrero announced today.

This past July, Dorrell signed a new five-year contract that included guaranteed compensation of $850,000. The contract, which covered the 2006 through 2010 seasons, contained an incentive package with a maximum of $505,000 per year.

His previous contract, originally signed prior to his first (2003) season, paid Dorrell $600,000 plus incentives.

'We are looking forward to an exciting and successful season in 2007,' Guerrero said. 'With Karl solidifying his coaching staff, an experienced team returning and a terrific home schedule, we are poised to take the next step with our program.'

Over the past two years, UCLA has compiled a record of 17-8 and is 12-1 at the Rose Bowl.

In 2006, the Bruins, playing with just two senior starters, finished 7-6, defeated No. 2 USC and finished 33rd nationally in total defense and tied for ninth in rushing defense. They won their final three regular-season games and produced three first-team All-Americans - defensive ends Bruce Davis and Justin Hickman and place kicker Justin Medlock.
