Extension runs through 2014 season
Purdue coach Danny Hope has received a one-year contract extension that runs through the 2014 season, athletic director Morgan Burke announced Wednesday.
Hope signed a six-year deal with Purdue in January 2008. He spent one year as associate head coach before succeeding Joe Tiller last season.
Purdue went 5-7 in Hope's first year at the helm.
"Beginning with the day he returned to Purdue, Danny has followed a master plan for our football program that focuses on our core values of success on the field, in the classroom and in the community," Burke said in a statement. "The results in his first year as head coach were encouraging, and we are confident that great days are ahead."
Hope, 51, will earn $900,000 in guaranteed money for the 2010 season and has the chance to make an additional $500,000 in bonuses related to academic performance, athletic performance and game attendance.
"I feel good about the foundation that has been laid since I came back to Purdue in 2008, but we have a lot of work to do to get where we want to be as a football program," Hope said in a statement.
Hope is 40-29 in six seasons as a head coach, having spent the first five at Eastern Kentucky, his alma mater.
