Memphis’ Ryan Silverfield receives 5-year extension

Ryan Silverfield

Memphis coach Ryan Silverfield on Tuesday agreed to a five-year, $12.25 million contract extension that spans through the 2028 season.

Per the university, Silverfield will receive $2.2 million for the 2024 season, $2.25 million the following year, $2.5 million in 2026, $2.6 million in 2027 and $2.7 million in 2028.

Silverfield, who earned $1.9 million in 2013, has posted a 31-19 record with the Tigers since replacing Mike Norvell as the team’s coach in December 2019. Norvell left for Florida State prior to the team’s game in the Cotton Bowl.

“We are extremely excited to make this commitment to Coach Silverfield to keep him leading our football program into the future,” said Laird Veatch, Memphis vice president and director of intercollegiate athletics.

“Coach Silverfield guided the team to one of the best seasons in program history in 2023 and we believe he’s laid the foundation to help Memphis ascend even higher in the expanded College Football Playoff era.”

Silverfield, 43, guided the Tigers to a 10-3 record last season, highlighted by a 36-26 win over Iowa State in the Liberty Bowl.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be the head football coach at the University of Memphis,” Silverfield said in a press release. “I am excited and appreciative of the commitment to continue moving forward with the progress of our football program.”
