After the Idaho State game, we knew a contract extension for coach Kalani Sitake was coming. I mean, how many athletic directors wear a shirt supporting their football coach during post-game celebrations and don’t follow through? Actually, how many ADs actually show that level of support — whether or not their football coach’s contract is closer to ending?
But still, the fact that everything was finalized by Monday morning seemed to catch some people off guard. Not that Sitake got the extension, but how quickly it came after the Cougars accepted a bowl invitation.
Was everything pretty much already set in motion and AD Tom Holmoe just wanted the cherry on top to get the papers ready?
