PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Board of Regents is about to open up the vault as all of the state's major coaches agreed to new contracts that will give them salary bumps.

Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez agreed to a two-year contract extension through 2019 that will raise his base salary to $1.9 million.

Arizona and coach Sean Miller have agreed on a one-year contract extension that will raise his base salary to $1.6 million for the final year of the deal.

UA athletic director Greg Byrne also has agreed to a one-year contract extension through 2019 that will raise his base salary to $725,000 by the end of the deal.

All extension must be approved by the Arizona Board of Regents when it meets June 5-6.

Rodriguez has led the Wildcats to a pair of 8-5 seasons and two bowl wins since arriving in Tucson.

Rodriguez will receive $500,000 for peripheral duties like radio and TV appearances, and has numerous performance incentives, including $1 million for a national title and $300,000 for a Pac-12 championship.

Miller has helped resurrect Arizona's program, leading the Wildcats to the NCAA tournament four times, including two trips to the Elite Eight.

Miller signed a one-year extension through 2018 last June. He would receive a $100,000 raise in 2019 under the extension and have numerous academic and performance incentives, including $500,000 for a national title and $200,000 for a team cumulative grade-point average of 3.0.

Miller also is paid more than $1 million annually for peripheral duties and from sponsorship deals.

Up north, Arizona State coach Todd Graham has agreed to a one-year contract extension through 2019 that will raise his base salary to $2.7 million next season.

Graham has coached in Tempe for two seasons with a record of 18-9. He led the Sun Devils to a bowl victory his first season and took them to the Pac-12 championship game last season.

Graham also will have numerous performance and academic incentives, including a bonus of 50 percent of his salary for winning a national championship and a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or a graduation rate of 95 percent for his team.

He received a one-year contract extension through 2018 in September that will pay him gradual raises.

And finally Northern Arizona agreed to a two-year contract extension with coach Jack Murphy. The extension, which will run through the 2019 academic year.

Murphy took over a program in disarray when he was hired for his first head-coaching job in 2012. The Lumberjacks lost their coach early the previous season and finished 1-15 in the Big Sky Conference.

NAU went 11-21 under Murphy in 2012-13 and he had the Lumberjacks in contention for a conference title until late last season, finishing 15-17 and 12-8 in the Big Sky.

His base salary of $185,400 will not change under the extension.
