Ellerson signs contract extension at Army
Question of the Day
WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Army coach Rich Ellerson, who this season will guide the Black Knights to their first bowl game in 14 years, has been given a two-year contract extension.
Terms of the agreement were not revealed. The new pact, announced Tuesday, will extend Ellerson’s contract through 2015.
In just his second season at Army, Ellerson has guided the Black Knights (6-5) to a berth in the Armed Forces Bowl against SMU on Dec. 30. Army was 5-7 his first season.
“This is where we’ll finish up I hope,” said the 56-year-old Ellerson, who coached at Cal Poly for eight seasons before taking over at Army in 2009.
Army concludes its regular season against Navy (8-3) on Saturday in Philadelphia. If the Black Knights win one of their two remaining games, Ellerson would become the first coach to win at least 12 games in his first two seasons since Tom Cahill won 16 in 1966 (8-2) and 1967 (8-2).
