San José State’s Brent Brennan signs extension through 2023 season

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The San José State Spartans have re-signed head football coach Brent Brennan. He is now signed through the 2023 season.

Brennan was being considered for the Arizona Wildcats head coaching vacancy. However, he withdrew from consideration after being the front-runner for the job.

Arizona eventually settled on Jedd Fisch as their new head football coach.

“Everyone connected with the ‘Spartan Nation’ is thrilled Coach Brennan accepted the university’s offer to remain our head coach,” Spartans Director of Athletics Marie Tuite said. “Today’s announcement is one more touchpoint on one of the best football seasons in San Jose State’s history. We have one more game to go and that’s with Ball State in the Arizona Bowl. It’s one more opportunity for the ‘Spartan Nation’ to watch the performance of this incredible team.”  

Brennan guided the Spartans to a Mountain West Conference Championship this season. The Spartans are perfect this season with a 7-0 mark.

They face the Ball State Cardinals in the Arizona Bowl on New Year’s Eve in Tucson, Arizona.

The 47-year-old is 15-29 as the Spartans head coach. He has one winning season — this season — in four seasons leading our program.

“This extension means everything,” Brennan said. “It’s another indication of Athletics Director Marie Tuite and our President Dr. (Mary) Papazian’s commitment to building a successful and sustainable football program here at San Jose State. It’s a validation that we’ve done the right things with our players on and off the field,” said Brennan, the 2020 Mountain West Football Coach of the Year and a finalist for multiple national Coach of the Year honors.  

“I feel great about where we are at. I’m really excited about this bowl game. It gives us a chance to focus on this bowl game and put everything we can into playing well there against a very good Ball State team. And, it gives me a chance to keep our staff together. I think a big part of our journey is the quality of our assistant coaches and our staff that surrounds the team. For us, to continue moving this program forward with a contract extension and the belief and support of our administration is absolutely critical.”
