The seven-year extension certainly locks Fleck up for the foreseeable future. Now, it’s all about results. Fleck has had plenty of quality results this season, leading Minnesota to an 8-0 record through its first eight games.

Following the news of his extension, Fleck spoke with the media:

Fleck says it perfectly: Minnesota has everything.

If you’re a Golden Gophers fan, that is exactly what you want to hear. It’s always nice hearing the coach speak good things about the program.

It’s another to see a seven-year extension come to life. It’s a good day to be a Gopher fan.
