Grambling, Fobbs discussing new contract

GRAMBLING — Grambling's football program is experiencing a rejuvenation under Broderick Fobbs, and the university has every intention of keeping the Tigers' coach around.

Fobbs, who was hired in 2013, has a three-year contract that expires in December 2016, and the two sides are nearing an agreement, according to new Grambling president Rick Gallot.

"We are committed to coach Fobbs. Coach Fobbs has expressed his commitment to us," Gallot said Wednesday. "I can tell you we are incredibly close to having that done. Obviously, he's been busy with a winning season. I've not attempted to put any pressure on him. The talks have been on going. We're really, really close."

Fobbs is earning $190,000 annually as part of the three-year contract. It's unclear what Grambling will offer for his new deal.
