May told WPTV anchor Jay Cashmere that he and the athletic director agreed to the new deal weeks ago.

"[Athletic director] Brian White and I spoke about it several weeks ago. That was the intention all along, get through the season, let's not get distracted with those details while we're trying to win," May said. "[I] never really entertained anything else. [I] was committed to being here with our guys, with our administration building something great, so we're ecstatic to be going forward here at FAU."

May said he hasn't stopped since getting back from Houston, staying busy with recruiting and practicing, and is already looking forward to next season.
