Report: Details about new LSU DC Bo Pelini's contract emerge
LSU is bringing back Bo Pelini as its defensive coordinator. Pelini, of course, was the Tigers’ defensive coordinator when they won a national championship under Les Miles in 2007.
Pelini then moved on to Nebraska and was most recently the head coach at Youngstown State before landing back at LSU.
So, what will Pelini make in his second stint with the Tigers? Per a report from The Advocate, Pelini will make about $2.3 million per year during the course of his contract:
A source said Pelini agreed to a three-year contract worth $2.3 million per year, a figure just under the $2.5 million LSU was paying his predecessor, Dave Aranda, who left Baton Rouge to be the head coach at Baylor.
How will Pelini fare as he tries to replace Aranda? Will it lead to another opportunity as a Power 5 head coach?
We’ll see how the 2020 season goes with Pelini at the helm of the LSU defense.
