Montana extends Delaney

Updated: November 27, 2013

Missoula, MT ( – Montana head football coach Mick Delaney
received a one-year contract extension on Wednesday.

Delaney is currently in the second year of a two-year contract. The new deal,
which is pending approval by the Montana Board of Regents, takes him through
the 2014 campaign.

“Where I am at in my career, and to be able to stay at the University of
Montana one more year, is just almost unbelievable,” said Delaney.

The Grizzlies are 10-2 so far this season and 15-8 since he took over prior to
last season.

Montana recently earned an at-large berth into the NCAA Division I Football
Championship and received a No. 8 seed, giving it a bye in the first round.

The Grizzlies will play the winner of the Bethune-Cookman at Coastal Carolina
game in a second round FCS playoff contest at home next Saturday, Dec. 7.

“I think this just reinforces on how hard we have all hung in there together,
and how hard we’ll continue to hang together,” Delaney said. “We’re excited
for the playoffs, and I know that we will go into next week with a great
amount of focus and intensity. We will play hard, and let the chips fall where
they may.”
