Any talk of Matt Campbell moving to another school can officially be tossed out the window after he signed a six-year extension at Iowa State.

The school announced the move on Monday evening.

He’s getting quite the pay raise on this new deal, too.

Since coming over from Toledo, where he spent five years, Campbell has transformed the Cyclones into a very competitive team. They knocked off both teams playing for the Big 12 Championship this upcoming Saturday — Oklahoma and TCU — and finished with a record of 7-5 and an upcoming bowl bid.

One of the hottest names out there this months as programs looked for new coaches, Campbell is obviously quite happy to build a legacy at Iowa State.
