Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun signed a contract extension through the 2029 season ahead of his 18th season with the Falcons.

"Thank you to General Richard Clark, (athletic director) Nathan Pine, and AFAAC for the Academy's sturdy commitment and support to help our football program build leaders of character for our country," Calhoun said in a statement on Tuesday. "Amanda and I are incredibly grateful for the tremendous people -- coaches, players, administration, faculty, the Foundation, staff, cadet wing, and their families -- that we are blessed to be alongside each day. Bolt Brotherhood!"

Calhoun is 130-82 as a head coach with 13 bowl game appearances at Air Force, where his record over the past four full seasons is 40-12.

Air Force has claimed the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy five times under Calhoun, who has eight seasons with nine or more wins.

"Coach Calhoun has had an outstanding career at Air Force over the last 17 years," Pine said. "He understands and embraces the mission of the Academy and leads our program accordingly. I am proud of the success we have enjoyed together over the last five seasons and look forward to continuing to build on that in the new College Football Playoff model. We are pleased to have Coach Calhoun continue leading our football program for the next six years and beyond."
