The Post’s Steve Yanda obtained a copy of London’s contract through an open-records request.
Last week, Virginia announced that London had agreed to a two-year contract extension that increases his guaranteed annual compensation and provides for additional compensation for the assistants on his staff. The $2.1 million London will be paid this season is a a 23.5 percent increase from the original five-year contract he signed in December 2009.
This season, London’s second in Charlottesville, Virginia finished 8-5 and advanced to a bowl game for the first time since 2007. The Cavaliers fell to Auburn, 43-24, in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Year’s Eve.
London’s contract also includes:
— An annual salary pool for his assistant coaches of up to $2.15 million. That pool increases 5 percent each year.
— A $750,000 longevity bonus if London is still Virginia’s coach on Jan. 15, 2015. The school will have to pay him the $750,000 if it terminates London’s contract without cause before that date.
— A $2 million buyout clause until the start of the 2014 season. If no new contract is reached with Virginia by then, the buyout goes away.
— Virginia initially gave London a loan on the buyout due to Richmond, where London was head coach in 2008 and 2009. London still owed $452,760.18 on that loan. The new contract forgives that amount.
In other contract news, Virginia defensive coordinator Jim Reid has signed a two-year contract that will pay him $395,000 annually, nearly an 11 percent raise.
