Tulane extended the contract of football coach Willie Fritz through the 2026 season, Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel reported Monday.

The seven-year deal begins with the 2020 season, per the report. Financial details were not provided.

Fritz, 60, is 24-27 since taking over the Green Wave in 2016, including a season-opening 27-24 victory at South Alabama on Saturday.

Tulane posted back-to-back 7-6 campaigns in 2018 and 2019, capping both seasons with bowl wins.

Before coaching Tulane, Fritz compiled an 18-7 record in two seasons at Georgia Southern and was named the Sun Belt Coach of the Year in 2014.
