The University of Miami announced Friday that it has agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with head football coach Al Golden, extending his deal through the end of the 2019 season.

The news is meant to squash speculation that Golden would leave the Miami Hurricanes to take over for his alma mater, Penn State.

Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst released a statement:

"I look forward to working side by side with Coach Golden for many years. Al has done a fantastic job of rebuilding and solidifying the foundation of our football program while fostering success both on and off of the field. He has been a first-class representative of our University and I am confident that with Al leading the way, our future is very bright."

The extension was announced during the fourth quarter of the Miami - Boston College game at Sun Life Stadium.
