The Gators (11-1) gave him one before the season.
President Bernie Machen and athletic director Jeremy Foley met in August and agreed to extend Muschamp’s contract for a year, through 2017. The Gainesville Sun first reported the extension Tuesday.
Foley says in a statement that he and Machen “believed in the leadership and direction of the football program this summer and we made a decision to extend coach Muschamp’s contract an additional year this past August, prior to the start of the season.”
Financial terms remain the same, giving Muschamp another year at $2.7 million annually.
In January, after the Gators finished 7-6 in Muschamp’s first season, Florida picked up a one-year option in the contract.
