A successful first season was enough for Justin Fuente to earn more job security in Virginia Tech.
The school announced a contract extension for the head football coach Monday, keeping him under contract through the 2023 season.
Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports passed along financial details:
Fuente led the Hokies to a 10-4 record in his first year with the program.
"Coach Fuente has exceeded our expectations in terms of how well he and his staff have embraced the winning tradition established by Coach Frank Beamer at Virginia Tech, while adding their own distinct touches to enhance the legacy of our program," athletic director Whit Babcock said.

The 40-year-old coach joined the Hokies last season after spending the previous four years with Memphis. He took over for Beamer, who spent 29 years at the school while guiding the team to 23 consecutive bowl appearances.
Fuente lived up to this standard, leading the Hokies to the ACC title game in his first year and a win over Arkansas in the Belk Bowl. He was named ACC Coach of the Year in 2016.
