Report: SIU, Lennon Agree to Contract Extension

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Southern Illinois University's athletics director says the school and head football coach have agreed to a two-year contract extension.

Mario Moccia tells the (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan the Salukis reached the deal with 53-year-old Dale Lennon as the coach enters the final year of his contract.   The Salukis finished 7-5 last season in a four-way tie for second place in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Lennon signed a five-year contract in 2008 and got a one-year extension through next season. Moccia says Lennon will make the same amount - a base salary of $200,000 - in the latest extension.

SIU has missed the playoffs for four straight seasons.

Lennon is 42-28 at Carbondale. His 35 wins in his first three seasons there are the most in school history.
