Just two seasons into a six-year deal, Mark Richt appears set for a new extension with Miami.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the school is working on an extension with the football coach to "keep him at UM for years to come."
The length of the proposed extension is not yet known.
David Hyde of the Sun Sentinel reported when the coach was hired in 2015 that the deal was worth about $4 million per year, which was close to what he made at Georgia.
The 58-year-old spent 15 years with the Bulldogs before joining Miami and has immediately found success in his new location.
The Hurricanes went 9-4 in his first season, including a win in the Russell Athletic Bowl that represented the school's first bowl victory in 10 seasons. The squad went 10-3 in 2017, winning the first 10 games of the year before fading down the stretch.
Still, it was the first 10-win season for the program since 2003.
Richt also helped put together a top-10 recruiting class for 2018, per 247SportsComposite Rankings. Combining this with a lot of returning talent like quarterback Malik Rosier and running back Travis Homer, and Miami could be a top contender nationally in 2018.
Bleacher Report's David Kenyon listed the squad No. 6 overall in his preseason rankings.
It's clear the school feels Richt has Miami heading in the right direction.
