Kansas State football coach Chris Klieman has reportedly agreed to a substantial contract extension.

According to Pete Thamel, Klieman has agreed to an extension through 2026, and his salary “will average close to $4 million annually.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Klieman is 10-6 so far during his career with the Wildcats, and has two monster wins over Oklahoma.

I love this move from Kansas State. Klieman might have only coached a grand total of 16 games so far, but the Wildcats are clearly trending in the correct direction.

After all, KSU has become a massive thorn in Oklahoma’s side since his arrival. At the very least, that’s a good enough reason for an extension.

Getting paid nearly $4 million also is a hell of a pile of money, especially when you factor in the living costs of being in Kansas.

I don’t think Klieman will be struggling to play the bills anytime soon.
