Less than one year after starting on the job Miami University has extended the contract of athletic director David Sayler. His new five year extension keeps him under contract through the 2018-2019 season. Sayler has already overseen the hiring of three head coached in that span, including a new head football coach. The athletic department as a whole has achieved some new highs under his watch too. The department say the school's student athletes achieve the highest semester GPA, 3.24, in his first semester on the job.
