P.J. Fleck has been one of the most successful coaches in the history of Minnesota football. The program has clearly recognized Fleck’s success, locking their head coach up on a new long-term deal.
Matt Fortuna of the Athletic has reported that Minnesota and Fleck have agreed to a seven-year, $42 million contract. Flex received a $1 million per season raise from his previous contract.
Over his six years with the Gophers, Fleck holds an overall record of 70-43. As Fortuna points out, it’s the most wins by a Minnesota head coach in their first six years dating back to 1905.
Fleck’s worst season came in 2020 when the Gophers went 3-4. But throughout the other five years of his tenure, the Gophers have won at least five games.
