The University of Wisconsin athletic board approved the renewal of four coaches' contracts Friday, including head football coach Paul Chryst.

Chryst's contract now runs through Jan. 31, 2023. He's scheduled to earn $3.3 million in 2018, with his salary increasing by $100,000 each year thereafter.

Chryst led the Badgers to a 13-1 record this season, the most wins in program history, capped by victory over Miami in the Orange Bowl.

Contracts were also renewed for volleyball coach Kelly Sheffield (five years), women's soccer coach Paula Wilkins (three years) and men's soccer coach John Trask (three years).
