After Duke became eligible for a bowl game for the first time since 1994 in 2012, Duke signed head coach David Cutcliffe to an extension. It was announced on Wednesday that his extension runs through June 30, 2019.
That’s about seven more years.
Hopefully the team plays better than it has of late over the course of those years. They are currently 5-1 at home with their home finale on Saturday against Miami.
Here is what Duke University Vice President of Athletics Kevin White had to say about the extension (via goduke.com):
“Without question, we have already made great discernible progress since David’s arrival,” White stated. “However, as we assess our future – based on prospect evaluations, ongoing recruitment activity and player development – we are extremely excited, if not euphoric! To be sure, ‘Coach Cut’ represents just a great fit at Duke. David and the staff have done an exemplary job of leading the program, while subscribing to the highest instuitional ideals, both academically and athletically.”
