GRAMBLING, La. (AP) - 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 (https://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.
