Washington State’s Jake Dickert accepts extension through 2027

PULLMAN – Washington State football coach Jake Dickert has agreed to a contract extension that will keep him tied to the Cougars through the 2027 season.

The school announced Dickert’s extension Wednesday but did not release the financial terms. Dickert’s previous deal was signed after the 2021 regular season and ran through 2026.

“We have seen Jake Dickert reset the foundation of WSU football that prioritizes family, selflessness, toughness, leadership and the overall development of the young men on our football team,” Athletic Director Pat Chun said. “Coach Dickert and the football staff strive to positively impact all those who come into contact with WSU Football.”

Dickert just finished his first full season in charge of the Cougars, leading Washington State to a 7-6 record and a second straight bowl game.

Dickert took over as interim head coach midway through the 2021 season after Nick Rolovich was fired for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Dickert went 3-2 in the regular season after taking over for Rolovich and had the temporary tag removed after the Cougars beat rival Washington in the Apple Cup.

Washington State ended last season with a loss to Fresno State in the LA Bowl. The Cougars open 2023 at Colorado State.
