According to Reports, Collins Set to Sign Extension with Bulldogs

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

After a weekend of wondering, all appears set for Mississippi State to keep Geoff Collins as the Bulldogs' defensive coordinator.

After Friday led fans to believe that Mississippi State defensive coordinator was heading to Florida State before they were told that work on an extension was in place, the weekend provided silence on the rumor front until Mississippi State's Bob Carskadon announced that two-year extension to keep Collins at Mississippi State had reached its final stages.

While numbers have not yet been announced, the university is expected to release them later today. For the Bulldogs, this helps keep their defense in place for the 2014 season.  In Collins's only year as the full-time defensive coordinator, his squad ranked 18th in the nation in total defense and 33rd in scoring defense. The Bulldogs also forced 25 turnovers, good for 35th in the country.
