Buffalo extends HC Lance Leipold through 2020

The Buffalo Bulls are pretty confident in their head coach Lance Leipold after just one season. He helped them to a 5-7 record in 2015 and he will be sticking around for at least one extra season.

According to College Football Talk, Leipold has been extended through the 2020 season after he signed a contract to run from 2015 to 2019. His $400,000 base salary was 12th out of the 13 coaches in the MAC, but there is no word on if he will be getting a pay raise.

“We are confident in Lance and his staff and are pleased with the progress that has been made,” athletic director Allen Greene said in a statement. “He is building a program the right way and the future is bright under his leadership.”

The Bulls started the season 5-4 and looked to be getting back to a bowl game but they lost the last three games of the season. He had a decent start to his career with the team and he is looking to build off of that.

Before coming to Buffalo, Lance Leipold spent eight seasons at Wisconsin-Whitewater, taking them to six national championships at the Division III level. He finished with a 109-6 record with the team, including five 15-0 seasons.
