BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado and football coach Mike MacIntyre have agreed to a contract extension and pay raise that will keep him with the university through the 2021 season, the school announced Monday.
The university said the deal will pay MacIntyre $16.25 million over the next five years, an average of $3.25 million per year.
His previous deal paid him around $2 million a year that went through the 2018 season.
“I am ecstatic that we will be at University of Colorado for the foreseeable future. There’s no place my family and I would rather be,” MacIntyre said in a statement. “We absolutely love it here, the people have been great and I truly believe this is just the beginning.”
MacIntyre has been a key part of reviving CU’s football program. After going 10-27 in his first three years, MacIntyre led the Buffaloes earn a 10-4 record this season. It was CU’s first 10-win season since 2001.
The Buffaloes won the Pac-12 South Division for the first time since joining the conference.
CU lost to Oklahoma State, 38-8, in the Alamo Bowl in December.AlertMe
