ANN ARBOR — The Michigan athletic department announced today that it has given defensive coordinator Greg Mattison a three-year contract extension.

Under Mattison, Michigan's defense finished second in the Big Ten and fifth in the nation in defensive passing yardage (169.5 yards per game), and its scoring defense finished fourth in the Big Ten and 20th nationally (19.8 points) in 2012.

Mattison enters his third season with the Wolverines and entered the final year of his original three-year contract, which was set to expire Dec. 31. Terms of the contract extension were not disclosed. Under his current contract, obtained by the Blade through an FOIA request, Mattison receives an annual base salary of $250,000, with bonuses of up to $150,000 for Michigan playing in bowl games and conference championship games.
