LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) - Jayhawk fans, Lance Leipold isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

According to ESPN’s Pete Thamel, Kansas has extended Leipold through the 2029 season.

Leipold has led the Jayhawks to their first bowl game since 2008 and he signed a one-year extension back in September that would’ve kept Leipold at KU through 2027. The Jayhawks started the season 5-0 and they currently sit at 6-5.

He is also a National Coach of the Year candidate.
