His new extension is for two more years and his deal will now run through the 2020 season. He’ll now be paid $3.3 million per season.
He was previously making $2 million per season.
This past season, the team finished with a 11-3 record. In addition, he’s 95-46 overall with the team in 11-years.
Whittingham has been with the Utes football program since 1994 — first as a defensive line coach then as defensive coordinator for 10-years before becoming the head coach. The 11-3 season was his best leading the team since a perfect 14-0 season during the 2008 season.
“I am grateful for the support and commitment shown by Chris Hill and President Pershing with this contract extension. It gives further stability to our football program and what we are trying to accomplish,” added Whittingham. “We are excited about the future here at Utah and the recruiting class we will sign next Wednesday.”
