AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) University at Buffalo football coach Lance Leipold has agreed to a five-year contract extension following a season in which the Bulls won a school-record 10 games and made their third bowl appearance.
Leipold completed his fourth season in Buffalo, and the extension runs through 2023. With a 23-27 record at Buffalo, he already ranks fourth on the school coaching list for victories.
The Bulls established numerous firsts in finishing 10-4 in a season that ended with a 42-32 loss to Troy in the Dollar General Bowl. Buffalo had a school-best 7-1 Mid-American Conference record and its 42-13 win at Rutgers was its first against a Power 5 conference opponent.
Leipold was hired out of Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater, where he had a 109-6 record and won six national championships.
