SDSU gives Hoke 2-year contract extension

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego State has given football coach Brady Hoke a two-year contract extension through 2015 that will include a bump in salary and improvements to practice facilities.

Financial terms weren't immediately available. Hoke was given a five-year contract worth $3,525,000 in December 2008 to replace the fired Chuck Long.

After going 4-8 in his first year, Hoke led the Aztecs to an 8-4 record this season and a berth in the hometown Poinsettia Bowl against Navy on Dec. 23. It's their first winning season and bowl berth since 1998.

Hoke recently was courted by Minnesota, which hired Northern Illinois coach Jerry Kill.
