ISU's Jackson receives contract extension


Iowa State wrestling coach Kevin Jackson got some job security on Wednesday.  Jackson was given a contract extension through 2015.

"Kevin's student-athletes have performed well in the classroom, been outstanding ambassadors for our athletics program and really enjoy wrestling for Kevin and his staff," Cyclone Athletic Director Jamie Pollard said.

Jackson's team has also seen more success on the mat this season.  The Cyclones posted an 11-5 dual meet record, a marked improvement from their 3-14 tally from the previous season.

Jackson's contract was set to expire following the current season.
