Lamb gets extension at Southern Utah

Cedar City, UT (Sports Network) - Southern Utah University and head football coach Ed Lamb agreed to a contract extension on Thursday.

Lamb took over the Thunderbirds after their 0-11 campaign in 2007 and guided them to a Great West Conference championship this past season with a 6-5 overall record.

In his first year at the helm, Southern Utah went 4-7, then proceeded to tack on an additional win in each of the next two seasons.

"I feel very fortunate that SUU has deemed me worthy of a contract extension," Lamb said. "[SUU director of athletics] Ken Beazer and president Michael Benson have a clear vision of future success for SUU football, and I'm so grateful to be a part of that plan."

Lamb is now signed through the 2015 season.
