Grambling State coach Broderick Fobbs is staying put for a few more years.
The university and Fobbs agreed to a two-year contract extension Thursday that will keep Fobbs at Grambling — his alma mater — through 2018.
Fobbs’ current contract was scheduled to expire in December. He will receive the same base salary of $195,000, but he was able to negotiate higher incentives and a larger salary pool for his assistant coaches.
The News-Star reports (http://tnsne.ws/2e4W12u ) the third-year coach is 19-8 at Grambling with a 12-4 mark since 2015. The Tigers are 3-1 this season and are the favorite to play for the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship for the second consecutive season.
