Iowa State gives HC Matt Campbell 8-year extension

Iowa State has given Matt Campbell an eight-year extension, keeping the fifth-year head coach in Ames, Iowa, until 2028.

Further, the school vowed to provide Campbell $3 million in salary enhancements for his coaching staff over the next three years.

"Coach Campbell has always put investments in his student-athletes and football staff before his own personal gains," ISU director of athletics Jamie Pollard said in a statement. "That is the essence of servant leadership and is what makes Coach Campbell so successful."

Contract terms were not disclosed. Campbell earned an average of $3.5 million annually on his previous deal, which ran through 2025.

Campbell has resuscitated a moribund program, going 35-28 and leading the Cyclones to four straight bowl games, including last season's Fiesta Bowl. Iowa State went 9-3 last season.

"The University has made a terrific commitment to Cyclone football and I'm thrilled to continue to move this program forward," Campbell said.
