Jonathan Smith is in it for the long haul.
According to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel, Oregon State has given head coach Jonathan Smith a new six-year contract that will extend him through the 2025 season. Smith was slated to enter the third year of a five-year contract that would have paid him $1.9 million per season, plus bonuses.
NBC Sports Northwest has been able to confirm the report.
We confirmed a month ago that Oregon State Athletic Director Scott Barnes and Coach Smith have actually been discussing a reworking of his contract since October since Barnes loves the direction of the program.
