There's a rule in college football: if you win the national championships, you get paid!
Coach O and the LSU Tigers beat Clemson 42-25 and now the leader of the squad is sbout to get paid!
How much? Try $42 million over the next 6-years.
Dang! That's a lotta crawfish!
LSU athletic director Scott Woodward said, "Coach O has set a new standard at LSU. He has proven that he is not only a championship coach, but also a leader of a program committed to doing things the right way. He has represented our institution and our state with great pride, on and off the field of play. He is well-deserving of this new contract, which should make clear our commitment to Coach O and the direction of our football program."
Congratulations, Coach O! You are now the richest Cajun on earth!
