NCAA Football: Washington State at Washington Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State University has agreed to a contract extension with Football Head Coach Mike Leach. The extension was agreed through the 2024 season.

“Mike Leach has established, and continued, a culture of success at Washington State, both academically and athletically, that few have matched,” said WSU Director of Athletics Pat Chun. “He has returned WSU to national prominence, is one of the top football coaches in the nation, and we are fortunate to have him leading our program.”

In keeping with his agreement signed following the 2017 season, Leach’s 2020 compensation will be $4 million, while the following four years he is also scheduled to make $4 million per year. Following the 2020 season, Leach will also receive a one-time retention bonus of $750,000.

2019 was Leach’s 8th season in Pullman, he’s brought 55 wins during that span. The Washington State Cougars have also gone to six bowl games in the past seven years with Leach at the helm of the program.
