MSU's Mullen receives extension, pay raise

  •  

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has agreed to a new contract that will pay him an average of $2.65 million over the next four years.

The $10.6 million deal has a $1.4 million buyout, according to MSU spokesman Joe Galbraith. The contract is subject to approval of the state's college board, though that confirmation is usually a formality.

Mullen has a 13-11 record in two seasons at Mississippi State, but the program showed substantial improvement this fall, finishing the regular season with an 8-4 record. The 21st-ranked Bulldogs face Michigan in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 1.

The new contract represents a significant pay raise for Mullen, who was hired at a base salary of $1.2 million per year.
