UCLA coach Chip Kelly has signed a contract extension through the 2027 season, the school announced Friday. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
UCLA finished 9-4 last season with a 37-35 loss to Pittsburgh in the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl, but his winning percentage has increased in each of his five seasons. Last year was the first time since 2014 that the No. 21 Bruins were ranked in the final AP Top 25 and AFCA Coaches polls.
"I am excited about our football program under the leadership of Coach Kelly and his talented staff," UCLA athletic director Martin Jarmond said in a prepared statement. "The football program is on an upward trajectory, both on the field and in the classroom. Coach Kelly and his staff have done a tremendous job developing young men as demonstrated by their academic excellence."
