ISU Gives Football Coach Extension

 width=Illinois State football head coach Brock Spack has built a consistent, winning program in his six seasons at ISU and has committed to continuing that success.

Illinois State Director of Athletics Larry Lyons announced a contract extension Wednesday that will keep Spack at the helm of the program through at least the 2021 season.

Spack's salary will increase to $300,000, beginning with the 2015 season.

Lyons says Spack is a great fit for the program, campus our community. He calls him "a gifted football coach."

Spack has compiled a 46-26 (.693) record in six seasons at Illinois State and has led the Redbirds to winning campaigns in five of those six years.

He was named the 2014 Missouri Valley Football Conference Coach of the Year and is a two-time Eddie Robinson Award Finalist.

Spack has guided the Redbirds to a pair of playoff appearances in the last three seasons and led ISU to its first-ever appearance in the FCS Championship game in 2014-15.
