Weber State University and head football coach Jay Hill have agreed to a two-year contract extension on top of his current contract to run through 2021, the school announced in a statement on Thursday.

"I'm very excited about the success of our team and the direction we are heading at Weber State," Hill said in a statement. "The future is bright and my family and I love it here. I'm very appreciative of the Weber State administration for their support of me, our assistant coaches and our program. We can't wait for the upcoming season."

Hill led the Wildcats to the Footbal Championship Subdivision playoffs for the first time in seven seasons this past fall, his third season in charge of the program. Hill is 15-20 overall in his career at Weber State and 13-11 in Big Sky Conference games, including a 6-2 finish this past season in which Weber State finished 7-5 overall.

"Jay has brought energy and excitement to our football program that has fueled greater support from our community and beyond," said Jerry Bovee, Weber State Director of Athletics, in a statement. "He and his staff are improving the football culture by bringing the type of student-athletes that win on the field and in the classroom. Jay and Sara and their family have made a home in Ogden and I'm thrilled to be able to continue working with him and his staff going forward."
