The deal adds one year to his current contract and includes annual pay increases. He will earn $575,000 this year and $650,000 by the end of the pact.
"Our athletics department has achieved unprecedented success the past four years under John's tremendous leadership," said Kansas State president Kirk Schulz in a statement Friday. "With continued excellence in the classroom, record fundraising, dramatic facility improvements benefiting all of our student-athletes and three conference championships last year, K-State is truly recognized as a national leader in intercollegiate athletics."
