Air Force coach Troy Calhoun signs 5-year extension through 2019


AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun has agreed to a new five-year contract that runs through 2019.

Calhoun is 59-44 in eight seasons at the academy with seven bowl appearances. The Falcons have won three of the past five Commander-In-Chief trophies.

The Falcons went 10-3 last season and beat fellow 10-win teams Boise State and Colorado State.

Their win against the 21st-ranked Rams marked the highest-ranked team Air Force has beaten since 1996.

Outgoing athletic director Hans Mueh said Calhoun “has been a great inspiration to our future Air Force officers. His priorities in coaching are clearly in line with the goals of the Air Force Academy.”
