Athletic director Pat Chun extended through 2026

It may be the most deserved extension handed out in the Washington State Cougars athletic department in quite some time. WSU announced today that athletic director Pat Chun had agreed to a one-year extension of his contract, which now runs through 2026. The extension was first reported by Pete Thamel at Yahoo Sports.

Chun’s new salary will be $700,000 per year, increasing by $50,000 per year through 2025. There are also other, undisclosed incentives for fundraising, retention, and fiscal management.

“My family and I are grateful to President (Kirk) Schulz and the Board of Regents for their continued leadership and support,” said Chun in the school’s media release.
