LAWRENCE – Kansas football was just over 24 hours away from its 2022 season opener when it got another boost.

Kansas announced that head coach Lance Leipold has signed a one-year contract extension. He will carry him through the 2027 season with the Jayhawks.

“This is a statement about our exceptional confidence in Lance, his outstanding staff and the limitless potential of Kansas Football,” athletic director Travis Goff said in a statement. “When you consider that he and his staff didn’t arrive until May (2021), and therefore I didn’t get a chance to coach our guys until August of last year, the 2021 season could be considered ‘year zero’. Given the progress that has been made both on and off the field in such a short time, I couldn’t feel stronger. about the trajectory of this program under Lance’s leadership, as well as our shared commitment to taking Kansas Football to unprecedented heights.”
