San Diego State head coach Rocky Long has agreed to a contract extension with the Aztecs that will take him through the 2017 season, the school announced.
The Aztecs have gone 17-9 in Long's first two seasons at the school, including 9-4 this past season, when Long was named Mountain West Conference coach of the year.
Long's initial contract with San Diego State was a five-year deal worth $4 million that would have expired in 2015.
The extension does not include a raise.
"I am very excited about the future of Aztec football under Rocky Long's leadership," athletic director Jim Sterk said in a statement. "Coach Long has continued the growth and the success in all aspects of our program, while gaining more regional and national interest. I look forward to next season as we look to defend our Mountain West title."
