Report: Tim DeRuyter gets five year contract at Fresno State

Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports is reporting that Fresno State head coach Tim DeRuyter is to sign a new five-year contract extension, that will see him remain in charge of the Bulldogs through the 2018 season.

DeRuyter took Fresno State to an 11-2 record this season, including going 7-1 in the Mountain West Conference. During his two years at Bulldog Stadium DeRuyter has scored a 20-6 record, 14-2 in conference. Before he arrived, the Bulldogs had gone 4-9 the previous season.

The 51-year old served as Mike Sherman’s defensive coordinator for the Texas A&M Aggies in 2010-2011, helping them to 21st in scoring defence in the nation, and coached the team to a victory over Northwestern in the 2011 Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas after Sherman was fired.
