The University of Washington and football coach Chris Petersen have agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2020 season, the school announced Thursday morning.
Petersen’s compensation in 2019 and 2020 will be $4 million per year, the same as the final year (2018) of his original deal.
A UW spokesperson said a formal copy of Petersen’s new contract is not yet available.
Each of the Huskies’ assistant coaches originally signed two-year deals that expire at the end of January. New deals have not been reached for any of them yet, a spokesperson said.
Never miss a local story.
Petersen originally signed a 5-year deal through the 2018 season worth $18 million total.
“Coach Petersen has demonstrated tremendous integrity and is building a program that Husky fans can be proud of, both on and off the field,” UW athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement. “This extension is well-deserved and we hope Coach Petersen is a Husky for a long time to come.”
