Mississippi says it has finalized a contract with coach Hugh Freeze that will pay a base salary of $4.3 million next season.

Freeze and Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork announced last week that the two sides had reached a tentative agreement on a new contract, but details were released in a university statement on Friday. The contract runs for four years, which is the longest allowed by Mississippi state law.

Freeze's base salary rises $100,000 in each year of the deal, or 50 percent of the annual bonuses earned in the previous season depending on which is greater. His base salary immediately jumps to $5 million if the Rebels make the SEC championship game.

The school says Freeze earned a base salary of $3.15 million last season.
