Head football coach Tim DeRuyter’s five year contract extension, worth $7.5 million, has been finalized and signed.

The terms of the deal were agreed on in January and include $1.4 million in 2014, $1.45 million in 2015, $1.5 million in 2016, $1.55 million in 2017 and $1.6 million in 2018.

An additional $1.685 million per year could be added to his pay with academic and competition-based bonuses, according to The Fresno Bee.

"It's very gratifying to know that our administration is pleased with the direction that the football program is headed and wants to show its commitment to our future," DeRuyter told

Last season, DeRuyter received close to $1.4 million – $650,000 base salary, $150,000 for the conference title as well as performance bonuses – after the Bulldogs finished with an 11-2 overall record and the Mountain West Conference title.

DeRuyter’s overall record in two seasons at Fresno State is 20-6.

"We are elated and encouraged with the tremendous success that Bulldog football has achieved under Tim's leadership these past two years," Athletic Director Thomas Boeh told "The execution of these agreements illustrate Fresno State's clear commitment to establishing stability within the program on behalf of our student-athletes and the Red Wave."
