Diamond Dogs Finish 15th In Nation and Cohen Gets Paid

After beginning the 2010-2011 college baseball season unranked, the Diamond Dogs battled through the season and an 0-2 SEC Tournament to sweep their NCAA Regional and come 8 outs shy of a trip to Omaha for the College World Series.

That was enough to land them in 15th in the USA Today/ESPN poll. Not bad at all.

In addition to their top-15 finish, it was announced today that third year head coach John Cohen received a raise and contract extension that sees his base salary bumped from $250,000 to $262,500 as well as a contract extension that will see him as the Bulldog skipper through 2015.

"It's a privilege to work at Mississippi State University under the leadership of Dr. Mark Keenum and Scott Stricklin," said Cohen. "I'm so appreciative of the support of the Bulldog Nation. This is a great time to be part of the Mississippi State family."

The team was picked in the pre-season to finish 6th in the SEC West. Instead, they recorded the programs biggest single-season turnaround in conference to finish 1st in the West.
