Akron extends Terry Bowden for two years

Akron, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Akron has given head coach Terry Bowden a two- year contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2018 season.

The deal is pending approval by the school's Board of Trustees.

Bowden, who is currently in his second year at the helm of the Zips, has guided the squad to a 4-7 mark this season. That includes a 3-4 ledger in the Mid-American Conference. The Zips will finish their season Nov. 29 vs. Toledo.

This season, Akron has its highest win total since 2008, when the Zips went 5-7.

"I couldn't be more pleased with the progress we've made," Bowden said. "I'm proud of the dedication of the players and staff, who have never given up and are starting to see the rewards of their hard work. This contract extension is a product of their efforts and I appreciate the continued dedication the university has made to Zips Football. That dedication of resources was apparent when I interviewed for this position and helps with every aspect of our program."

Bowden's 2012 Zips finished 1-11. He was the head coach at Auburn from 1993-98. Prior to his arrival at Akron, he spent three seasons at Division II North Alabama.
