Purdue plans to bring embattled football coach Darrell Hazell back for a fourth season in 2016, sources told Yahoo Sports.

The school has not yet announced that Hazell will return.

With a 6-26 record, Hazell has the worst winning percentage in school history (.188) for any coach who was at Purdue for longer than one season. But he scored his biggest victory with the Boilermakers on Saturday, a 55-45 upset of Nebraska that raised the teams 2015 record to 2-6. That was the most points Purdue has scored since 2012, and improved Hazells Big Ten record to 2-18.

With Purdue announcing plans for a $60 million upgrade to its football facilities last month, there was speculation that a coaching change may be coming to enhance fundraising for the project. But the school hasnt had a football coach for fewer than four years since Bob DeMoss from 1970-72, and all signs point to that streak remaining intact.
