Central Florida working on extension for O’Leary
Central Florida is working on a two-year contract extension for
football coach George O’Leary that would keep him under contract
through the 2017 season.
Athletic director Todd Stansbury confirmed through a spokesman
the deal is expected to be completed soon.
O’Leary signed a 10-year contract in 2006 that is set to end
following the 2015 season. He is making just shy of $1 million a
year, although bonus incentives can push the figure to $1.5
The 66-year-old coach has guided the Knights to their first bowl
appearance and bowl victories. He also helped spur construction of
the on-campus football stadium.
The Knights are to join the Big East Conference next season.
