PROVO, Utah (AP) -Brigham Young extended coach Bronco Mendenhall's contract Wednesday through the 2011 season.
``Bronco has done a tremendous job of re-establishing BYU's tradition of football excellence and leading the program back to national prominence,'' athletic director Tom Holmoe said.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Mendenhall is entering his third season as coach of the defending Mountain West Conference champions. After a 1-2 start in 2006, the Cougars won 10 consecutive games and were undefeated in the conference, grabbing their first outright league title in five years.
Mendenhall, who was an assistant before BYU promoted him to replace Gary Crowton, is 17-8 in two seasons as coach.
The Cougars finished the year with a 38-8 victory over Oregon in the Las Vegas Bowl, their first bowl win since 1996. With an 11-2 record, BYU was ranked No. 16 in the final Associated Press poll.
``The BYU football program is heading in the right direction and I credit Bronco's leadership qualities for the success we've enjoyed in his first two seasons,'' Holmoe said.
