BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Kevin Wilson has agreed to a new six-year contract to remain Indiana University's head football coach, the school announced Monday.

The agreement runs through the 2012 season. Wilson's compensation will total $15.3 million over six years.

The contract will tie Wilson with University of Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh for Big Ten coach with the most seasons on his contract.

"This contract reflects our commitment to Kevin, to continuity, and to Indiana University Football," said IU Athletics Director Fred Glass. "Kevin has done a great job building our program into one that is competitive with the great teams of the Big Ten and the nation. We are confident that he will continue to lead us to sustained success on the field and in the classroom."

Wilson led the Hoosiers to the 2015 New Era Pinstripe Bowl – the team's second bowl appearance in the last 22 years. They were defeated in that game by the Duke Blue Devils.
