 DETROIT (AP) -Central Michigan coach Butch Jones has agreed to a two-year contract extension, keeping him under contract for the next five seasons.
Jones, a former West Virginia assistant, was a candidate for the Mountaineers' job that opened when Rich Rodriguez left to coach Michigan. West Virginia assistant Bill Stewart ended up with the West Virginia job.
``I'm really excited about staying at Central Michigan,'' Jones said Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press. ``I take it as a compliment that West Virginia showed interest in me, but at this time I'm not looking to go anywhere. The administration has been great with its support, and the future looks bright for Central Michigan football.''
Jones led the Chippewas to the Mid-American Conference championship in his first year in Mount Pleasant. He took over for Brian Kelly, who left Central for Cincinnati.
Central Michigan lost to Purdue 51-48 in the Motor City Bowl Dec. 26.
