Somehow, Gary Crowton has managed to parlay this…
The 53-year-old coach had come under heavy fire for what could be charitably described as inept offenses during his past two years with the Tigers. LSU was 45th (29.7) and 76th (24.8) in scoring offense, and 86th (341.3) and 112th (304.5) in total offense. Most embarrassing was an utterly limp passing attack: 107th (155.6) last year, 97th (181.8) in 2009.
… into a new three-year contract at Maryland, where he’ll be paid $100,000 a year more than he was getting at LSU.
Whoever Crowton’s agent is, that’s somebody who’s earning his keep.
