Colorado football coach Mike MacIntyre received a three-year, $16.25 million contract extension Thursday, the new deal approved unanimously by the university's Board of Regents, the school announced.

Approval of the extension — which runs through the 2021 season — was posponted until an external investigation into how the school, including MacIntyre, handled allegations of domestic abuse against former Buffaloes assistant Joe Tumpkin, the Denver Post reported.

On Monday, CU announced that based on that probe's findings of multiple "failures," MacIntyre and AD Rick George would be required to donate $100,000 to benefit domestic violence awareness groups and school chancellor Phil DiStefano would be suspended 10 days without pay.
