CEDAR CITY — After watching him turn Southern Utah's football fortunes around in the past three years SUU's administration extended head coach Ed Lamb's contract through the 2015 season.

In the three seasons since inheriting a team that went 0-11 in 2007, Lamb guided the team to the Great West Conference championship in 2010.

"I feel very fortunate that SUU has deemed me worthy of a contract extension," Lamb said. "(SUU Director of Athletics) Ken Beazer and President Michael Benson have a clear vision of future success for SUU football, and I'm so grateful to be a part of that plan."
