I don’t know too many coaches who’ve gone 6 years at a BCS school without ever reaching the NCAAs receive coaching extensions, but DeChellis has. However, he’s certainly made progress last year and it seems silly to not see this thing through. He’s now employed until after the 2013-2014 season. Usually extensions like this are used as recruiting tools to show coach stability. I would hope if Battle comes and goes without getting to the NCAA tournament that we would re-evaluate the program. But that is a long ways down the road (and an unlikely scenario IMO), so for now, congrats to DeChellis.
