Manhattan, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - Kansas State has signed athletic director John Currie to a contract extension through the 2018-19 academic year.

The deal adds one year to his current contract and includes annual pay increases. He will earn $575,000 this year and $650,000 by the end of the pact.

"Our athletics department has achieved unprecedented success the past four years under John's tremendous leadership," said Kansas State president Kirk Schulz in a statement Friday. "With continued excellence in the classroom, record fundraising, dramatic facility improvements benefiting all of our student-athletes and three conference championships last year, K-State is truly recognized as a national leader in intercollegiate athletics."

Currie was hired in May 2009 from Tennessee, where he had been the executive associate athletics director.
