AMES, Ia (KWWL) — Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell has signed on for more years at the helm of the Cyclones.
The news was confirmed in a tweet sent out by Iowa State Athletics Director Jamie Pollard on Sunday afternoon.
In the tweet, Pollard said Campbell signed a contract extension through 2024. Per the contract, Campbell also gets an additional one million dollars for his assistant coaches.
Campbell has been the Cyclones’ head coach for the last two seasons. His 2018 team has an 8-4 record which included a notable win over then-ranked no. 6 West Virginia.
This year, Campbell was given Co-Coach of the Year for the Big 12 after getting the sole award last year.
“Coach Campbell and I had a great end-of-the-year meeting Friday and during our visit we mutually agreed to extend his contract to 2024 and further demonstrate Coach Campbell and the University’s commitment to one another,” Pollard said, in a news release. “I couldn’t be more excited for our current players, fans and recruits to receive this great news.”
The Cyclones are set to play 12th-ranked Washington State in the Valero Alamo Bowl on Dec 28.
