AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has extended athletic director Jamie Pollard’s contract through 2026.

Pollard accepted the extension with no scheduled salary increase.

He was earning $757,000 when he announced 10% pay cuts for coaches and some administrators a year ago to help offset a $25 million budget shortfall because of COVID-19.

Iowa State had its best football season in program history in 2020.

The Cyclones played in the Big 12 championship game and beat Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.

Pollard also has overseen major facilities upgrades.
