In this first season last year, Lanning led Oregon to a 10-3 record, including a victory in the Holiday Bowl over North Carolina. Lanning was the linebackers coach for Georgia in 2018 and the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach from 2019-21.
Lanning, 37, would have to pay a $20 million buyout if he leaves for another job prior to the completion of the contract.
“Dan has exhibited tremendous leadership and an unwavering commitment to providing the best possible experience for our football student-athletes,” Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens said in a statement. “This joint commitment is one component of a bold vision for the future of Oregon football that will allow our program to continue to compete at the highest level and on the cutting edge of innovation and excellence.”
