Of note, McMahon’s contract will have an extra year automatically added onto it if LSU receives a postseason ban of 2 or more years or 2 or more scholarship reductions for 3 years or more.
McMahon went 154-67 during his time at Murray State, leading the Racers to the NCAA Tournament 3 times and going 2-3 in those tournaments.
