Murray State University announced Friday head coach Mitch Stewart received a three year contract extension. Stewart is coming off of his most successful season to-date going 5-6 overall and 5-3 in the OVC. The five league wins, which included a 4-0 start, and the fourth-place finish in the conference were the best by a Racer team since 2011.
The highlight of Stewart’s season came against 19th-ranked Southeast Missouri in the form of the biggest comeback in program history. The Racers were down 31-0 and rallied to win with a kickoff return for a touchdown with three second remaining.
