Mississippi State announces contract extension, raise for DC

Mississippi State Logo

Mississippi State and defensive coordinator Geoff Collins have agreed to a two-year, $1.2 million contract extension, the school announced Monday.

Over the weekend, a report surfaced that Mississippi State would sign Collins to a multi-year extension after his name was linked to the open Florida State defensive coordinator position. Collins only has one season as a defensive coordinator under his belt, but losing him would’ve meant Dan Mullen would’ve had to replace both his coordinators. Offensive coordinator Les Koenning left for a job at Texas earlier this month.

Under Collins, Mississippi State’s defense was solid, ranking 19th by F/+. In 2012, the Bulldogs’ defense ranked 64th by the same measure.

    MSU is a sleeper team next season, perhaps end up in Second Ten despite tough schedule.

    It seems like a bunch of money for a coordinator. That has to put him among the highest paid out there. I guess they thought he was worth it.
