San Diego State is coming off a 2012 season in which it went 9-4 and claimed a share of the Mountain West Conference title. It's the first time since winning the WAC in 1986 that the Aztecs have been able to claim a conference championship, and coach Rocky Long is being rewarded for the accomplishment.

On Thursday, the school announced Long had agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2017 season.

"I am very excited about the future of Aztec football under Rocky Long's leadership," said athletic director Jim Sterk in a release. "Coach Long has continued the growth and the success in all aspects of our program, while gaining more regional and national interest. I look forward to next season as we look to defend our Mountain West title."

Since Long took over for Brady Hoke before the 2011 season his teams have gone 17-9 over two seasons, including an 11-4 mark in Mountain West play.
