It’s good work if you can get it.

Kentucky coach Mark Stoops automatically qualified for another year on his contract, which is set to pay him $6.5-million in 2027, by beating Vanderbilt 34-17 on Saturday. How’s that for a kicker?

The Cats are now 7-3 and 5-3 in the SEC.

There could be even more good news in Stoops’ future. According to a report by On3, Stoops will earn a $250,000 bonus beginning with the ninth win of each season.

Kentucky will host New Mexico State on Saturday and play at Louisville for the Cats’ regular season finale. New Mexico State is 1-9. Louisville is 5-5.

Stoops is currently one of the 15 highest-paid college football coaches in the country and sixth-highest in the SEC, per the report.
