The most successful head coach at Penn State University has signed a contract extension.

As first reported by the Pittsburgh PostGazette’s Max Ralph, Cael Sanderson, who has guided Penn State’s wrestling team to nine national championships in 13 seasons at the helm, has singed a contract extension. A Penn State spokesperson confirmed the report with Blue-White Illustrated .

How long and how much the contract is for remains undisclosed, but this is clearly good news for Penn State and its fans. Before Sanderson’s arrival, the wrestling team hadn’t won a national championship since 1953.

In Sanderson’s second season, Penn State win it all, and repeated the feat in 2012, ‘13 and 14.

After a brief drought in 2015, Penn State won four in a row from 2016-‘19, and then added another this March.

Sanderson has established himself as one of Penn State’s best coaches ever in any sport, and one of the best college wrestling coaches of all time. Now, it doesn’t look like he’ll leave Happy Valley for a while.
