Washington St’s Jake Dickert agrees to extension through ’27

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) – Washington State coach Jake Dickert has agreed to a contract extension that will tie him to the Cougars through the 2027 season.

The school announced Dickert’s extension Wednesday but did not release financial terms. Dickert’s previous contract was after the 2021 regular season and ran until 2026.

“We have seen Jake Dickert redesign the foundation of WSU football which prioritizes family, selflessness, tenacity, leadership and the overall development of the young men on our football team,” said athletic director Pat Chun. “Coach Dickert and the football team strive to positively impact everyone who comes into contact with WSU Football.”

Dickert just wrapped up his first full season in charge of the Cougars, leading Washington State to a 7-6 record and a second straight bowl game.

Dickert took over as interim head coach midway through the 2021 season after Nick Rolovich was fired for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Dickert went 3-2 in the regular season after taking on Rolovich and had the interim tag removed after the Cougars defeated rival Washington in the Apple Cup.

Washington State ended last season with a loss to Fresno State in the LA Bowl. The Cougars will open in the state of Colorado in 2023.
