KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas head football coach Lance Leipold has been awarded a new contract that pays him more than $7 million a year, according to a report.

Citing sources, ESPN College Football Senior Writer Pete Thamel first reported the news on social media.

The move doesn't add any additional years in Leipold's contract, according to Thamel.

"Leipold has delivered back-to-back bowl seasons at Kansas, and the school has prioritized keeping him," Thamel said in the social media post.

In September 2022, the university extended Leipold's contract to last through 2027.

The head coach has lead the Jayhawks to back-to-back bowl games — the Liberty Bowl in 2022 and Guaranteed Rate Bowl in 2023.
