Outside of practicing for the Liberty Bowl, Mississippi State head coach Sylvester Croom has been working diligently to get more money for his assistant coaches. And that work looks to have paid off.
Figures were not disclosed, but Croom said Thursday night that an agreement had been reached, and his coaching staff looks to be locked in for at least another season.
That includes defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson, who recently interviewed for jobs at Georgia Tech and South Carolina.
According to the Clarion-Ledger newspaper, he and offensive coordinator Woody McCorvey are thought to be the lowest paid coordinators in the Southeastern Conference.
