Louisiana-Lafayette is set to approve a six-year contract extension for head football coach Mark Hudspeth, according to CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler.

According to the report, a deal could be in place by early next week.

In three seasons at the school, Hudspeth has a record of 27-12, winning nine games each season. Last season, the Ragin' Cajuns won the New Orleans Bowl, their third straight victory in that bowl game.

Before landing with Lafayette, Hudspeth spent seven seasons at Division II school North Alabama, compiling a 66–21 record and taking his team to the playoffs five times. MANDEL: NLRB ruling signals major change to come; more Mailbag
