Cohen’s salary, Croom’s buyout revealed

The NCAA asks all of its member schools to keep a document on file outlining all of its coaches’ outside income. It’s a handy little document, and I submit a public records request annually to learn of its contents. It’s not always news, of course, because most of the time it reveals exactly what we’ve reported before in terms of salaries, etc. This year’s request would be particularly newsworthy, I thought, because it might tell of the money paid to former football coach Sylvester Croom upon his pressured resignation and baseball coach John Cohen’s salary, exact amounts of which have never been revealed by Mississippi State.
