Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini received a new contract extension that will keep him at the school through the 2018 season, reports Gregg Doyel of CBS Sports.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Pelini has a 58-24 record in seven seasons in Lincoln. His Nebraska teams have won at least nine games each season, and the Cornhuskers won their first bowl game since 2009 this year after a 24-19 victory over Georgia in the Gator Bowl.

Pelini made headlines in November after a 38-17 loss to Iowa, telling reporters"If they want to fire me, go ahead. I believe in what I've done. I don't apologize to you. I don't apologize to anybody, myself or this staff."

He was also recorded in 2011 making disparaging comments about Cornhusker fans, which came to light this past year after a home loss to UCLA.
