North Texas coach Dan McCarney received a new five-year deal, keeping him at the school through the 2018 season, reports ESPN.com's Brett McMurphy.

McCarney made $545,300 last season, which ranked among the bottom half of Conference USA coaches, according to the report.

Last week, the Dallas Morning News reported the new deal would be for four seasons with a clause for an automatic renewal for a fifth season based on the team's on-field performance.

McCarney, 60, led North Texas to a 9-4 record and a Heart of Dallas Bowl victory over UNLV last season. It was the school's first bowl win in 11 seasons.

In three seasons at the school, McCarney has compiled a 18-19 record. RICKMAN: ACC spring football primer: Burning questions for each team
