Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Tennessee State football coach Rod Reed signed a five-year extension through the 2018 season on Wednesday.

Reed holds a 26-21 record over four years at the Ohio Valley Conference university, including an 18-7 mark over the past two seasons.

"We are very pleased to be extending Coach Reed's employment contract," TSU athletic director Teresa Phillips said. "He has brought TSU football back to where it had not been for the last 15 years and that is commendable. We're looking for great things to come in the future, but we wanted to solidify our commitment to him and to the TSU football program."

The Tigers are coming off a 10-4 season and their first FCS playoff appearance since 1999.

"I think that the extension is a credit to the accomplishments of our staff over the past two or three seasons," said Reed, who was a TSU assistant coach from 2003-09 before becoming the head coach.

"I appreciate the commitment from the administration and it is good to know that we will have no worries other than keeping this football program at a championship level."

Tennessee State is scheduled to open the 2014 season at home on Aug. 30 against a yet-to-be-named opponent in the John Merritt Classic.
