GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — University of North Dakota football coach Chris Mussman has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the helm at least through the 2015 season.

School officials announced the new deal Monday. UND athletic director Brian Faison says Mussman's base salary for the first year of the contract is $114,612, with bonus incentives for items such as conference championships, playoff appearances, player honors and academic awards.

The agreement includes two options that could extend the contract through 2017.

Mussman is entering his fifth season as head coach at UND. He has an overall record of 23-20, including an 8-3 mark last year and a share of the Great West Conference title.

UND is beginning its first year in the Big Sky Conference.
