BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — California coach Justin Wilcox has signed a new five-year deal to stay under contract with the school through the 2023 season.
The deal signed Thursday adds two more years to the original contract signed in 2017. Wilcox also gets a raise and more money for his assistant coach pool.
Wilcox went 7-5 in his second season at Cal and is taking the Golden Bears to the Cheez-It Bowl later this month. He has a 12-12 record at Cal.
The Bears have shown marked improvement on defense under Wilcox. They ranked third in the Pac-12 in scoring and total defense and fifth in the NCAA in interceptions
