Missoula, MT (SportsNetwork.com) - Montana head football coach Mick Delaney received a one-year contract extension on Wednesday.
Delaney is currently in the second year of a two-year contract. The new deal, which is pending approval by the Montana Board of Regents, takes him through the 2014 campaign.
"Where I am at in my career, and to be able to stay at the University of Montana one more year, is just almost unbelievable," said Delaney.
The Grizzlies are 10-2 so far this season and 15-8 since he took over prior to last season.
Montana recently earned an at-large berth into the NCAA Division I Football Championship and received a No. 8 seed, giving it a bye in the first round.
The Grizzlies will play the winner of the Bethune-Cookman at Coastal Carolina game in a second round FCS playoff contest at home next Saturday, Dec. 7.
"I think this just reinforces on how hard we have all hung in there together, and how hard we'll continue to hang together," Delaney said. "We're excited for the playoffs, and I know that we will go into next week with a great amount of focus and intensity. We will play hard, and let the chips fall where they may."
