Sources tell GopherIllustrated's Ryan Burns that Minnesota head coach Tracy Claeys will be receiving a contract extension in the next couple of weeks.
Minnesota athletic director Mark Coyle had this to say following this news:
"Now that our regular season is complete, Tracy and I have begun to discuss this past season and the plan for our program moving forward. He is our head football coach. As is the case with every one of our head coaches, he has my full support. I will do whatever I can to help him and our students achieve at the highest levels.
Our football program has now won eight games in the regular season three times in four seasons. We expect that our program will continue to grow and I am committed to putting us in a position to do so. This includes working with Coach Claeys to evaluate where we need to improve and what each of us can do to ensure we meet our expectations."
GopherIllustrated will have more coverage soon.
