South Carolina’s Beamer gets big raise in new contract

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina coach Shane Beamer more than doubled his salary for next season in a new contract worth more than $33 million over the next five years. The university’s board of trustees approved the agreement Friday. Beamer will make $6.125 million in 2023, a big boost from the $2.75 million in compensation in the deal he signed after becoming head coach in December 2020. Beamer will get an increase of $250,000 each season after that until he gets $7.125 million in 2027.
