STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom received a two-year contract extension Monday.
The extension pushes Croom's contract to four years, the longest allowable under state law, and runs through 2011. Financial terms were not released.
After nine wins in three seasons, Croom led the Bulldogs to an 8-5 record and a Liberty Bowl win over Central Florida. It was the first season Mississippi State had more than three wins since 2000 and Croom was selected Southeastern Conference's coach of the year following the turnaround.
