Provo, UT (Sports Network) - Brigham Young University head football coach Bronco Mendenhall has signed an agreement that extends his contract through the 2016 season.

Mendenhall has been the Cougars' head coach since 2005, leading BYU to a 74-29 record and a bowl appearance in each of his eight seasons. The Cougars have a 6-2 bowl record under him and have won the last four straight.

"I am thrilled to have Bronco signed as our head football coach through the 2016 season," said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. "Over the past eight seasons, his leadership has guided our football program back to national prominence through top-25 rankings, bowl victories, All-American athletes and overall excitement at LaVell Edwards Stadium. I look forward to what the next four years will bring with the new era of BYU football."

BYU has also been ranked in the top-25 polls in seven of the last eight seasons and has finished the year nationally ranked five times.

"BYU is a special place and this is a special time," said Mendenhall. "I'm excited to build on the success of our program over past eight years, and I think there's much more that we can accomplish at BYU."

Last season, their second year as a football independent, the Cougars went 8-5 with a victory in the Poinsettia Bowl and their defense allowed 14.0 points per game, ranked third in the nation.
