His contract now lasts through the 2016 season. Hope is 15-21 (10-14 Big Ten) so far at Purdue. Michigan plays at Purdue in 2012, but does not play the Boilermakers in 2013 or 2014.
Purdue gives Danny Hope a 2-year contract extension
"Purdue Extends Hope For Two Years"
hope couldnt even coach in the MAC. We have Ron English waiting for w B1G opportunity so prove he is a big time coach. Then this happens. NO hope for Hope.
You are saying Ron English is waiting for an opportunity to coach in the B1G.
A 42% win percentage overall and in the B1G is about the best Purdue can Hope for.
They should also hope to not lose to a non BCS conference team every year. But if they are extending Hope, I guess they don't care.
Works for me
beat OSU. Despite Ohio's year from hell, it makes for a good leverage point for Danny Pornstache.
I still can't wrap my head around Purdue beating Ohio this season. Just crazy.
Wasn't Hope the head coach when they upset Ohio when Pryor was there?
Purdue has been up and down over the years, but they are good for the occasional upset. They're especially dangerous at home.
Hope not so much
Anybody want odds on whether Danny Hope will be coaching Purdue in 2016?
This will extend our ownership of Purdue for another two years as well. Doesn't take much to get a contract extension in West Lafayette apparently.
I don't think that's contingent upon Hope being their head coach
Let's be honest... 10-14 at Purdue is worth a 2 year extension The stache alone is worth one
Joe Tiller's mustache powers seemed to at least get them to the champs sports bowl every year
Well done Purderp, long may Hope, er, stay there!
But negged for the Purderp.
I'm pouring myself another and getting away from t'internet thing.
Rabble rabble rabble
if he somehow convinced the higher ups that he could get Purdue competitive with OSU being on probation, PSU in trouble and possibly heading that way. Illinois a fine mess and Indiana just being Indiana.
I had either Hope or Ferentz being the next Big Ten coach to get the axe.
coaches contracts are meaningless. its all about buyout. all colleges except where there is a coach for life situation typically have 4-5 years - recruits want to think their coach will be there for their five years, yet even with extensions, coach can and will be fired at any time.
Hurray! Keep him there forever. We just need for John Cooper, Bobby Williams and Tim Brewster to be reinstated at their previous schools.
That is a true Festivus miracle for Purdue fans.
