Jay Hill has a good thing going in Ogden, and it just got even better for him and the Weber State football program.

The school announced Hill has agreed to a two-year contract extension that will keep him at Weber State through the 2025 season. Hill has taken the program to unprecedented heights in his six years as head coach: The Wildcats have made the FCS playoffs each of the past four seasons, including the national semifinals last year, and have won outright or at least a share of each of the past three Big Sky Conference championships.

“I am super excited about the direction of our program, what we have accomplished and where we are heading,” Hill said in a statement. “Weber State is a very special place to me and I couldn’t be happier with the way our administration has backed me in building a championship program.”

Hill’s contract now runs through Jan. 31, 2026. He is 47-30 as the Wildcats’ head coach, including a 34-14 mark in conference play. Hill also has the best winning percentage in league games in school history and the second-highest overall winning percentage.

Weber State opens its 2021 spring season on Feb. 27 at Idaho State.  

“Jay has done an incredible job in building our football program into what it is today,” Weber State athletic director Tim Crompton said in a statement. “I echo his sentiments on the support from the WSU administration. Jay has proven himself as an elite coach and we are thrilled to have him sign this extension to continue to build on what he has accomplished.”
