(Ames) —Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell has agreed to a new eight-year contract, extending his current deal by three years, Iowa State officials have announced.

His new deal will run through Dec. 31, 2028.

Campbell, a three-time Big 12 Coach of the Year award winner, led the Cyclones to the most-successful season in school history while navigating a world-wide pandemic last season.

The Cyclones advanced to — and won — its first-ever New Year’s Six Bowl game with a 34-17 victory over Oregon in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl.

As a part of the deal, the Iowa State Athletics Department also agreed to provide Campbell a total of $3 million for staff salary enhancements over the next three years.

The department is set to open the newly finished $90 million Sports Performance Center, which will house the Cyclone football team and all of the program’s support services.
