The contract extension still requires approval from the U.C. Board of Regents before it’s official. The details of the agreement have not yet been released.

Dykes had two years remaining on the contract he signed prior to the 2013 season and was making a base salary of $2 million. The extension is expected to include a raise.

Dykes had been mentioned as a candidate for several open coaching positions this month.

Dykes led the Bears to a 7-5 record and the team’s first winning season since 2011.

Cal will play Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl on Dec. 29. A win in that contest would give Cal its first eight-win season since 2009.
