MSU Extends Head Football Coach Croom's Contract

Dec 15, 2004


STARKVILLE, Miss. - The Mississippi Board of Trustees, Institutions of Higher Learning approved Wednesday Mississippi State University's contract extension request for Bulldog head football coach Sylvester Croom. The extension carries Croom through the 2008 football season.

"This contract extension demonstrates the university's recognition of the outstanding job that coach Croom has done in just one year as the head of our football program," Director of Athletics Larry Templeton said. "It also fulfills our commitment to him, as it relates to our NCAA sanctions.

"We are proud of the work that coach Croom and his staff have done, building a foundation for the future of our football program," Templeton continued. "We are excited about the direction our program is headed and confident that he will be the leader of our football program well into the future."

Croom inherited a football program that had won just eight games in the previous three years. In just his first season, he nearly matched the number of Southeastern Conference wins achieved during those previous three years with back-to-back victories over Florida and Kentucky.

Good for Sly. It does look like they could've given him 7 years though. I don't know if they realize it, but it is gonna take time to put the dawgs back together again. I think Croom will do as quickly as anyone could, but there will still be hard times for the next few seasons.
