Ragin Cajun football fans are excited about Mark Hudspeth's new contract
The man who turned the program around will stay in the Vermillion and White through the 2016 season and he'll get paid about $750 thousand dollars a year.
The new contract was approved by the University of Louisiana System Board Of Supervisors yesterday.
"We're awfully glad that we got this behind us and we knew it was going to happen it was just a matter of getting everybody together and ironing out all the details. i'm just awful thankful to Dr. Savoie, Scott Farmer, and the Board Of Trustee's that was able to work all this out. we're working awfully hard and we're just awfully glad to be part of this community. hopefully this just says we want to be here and we're excited to be here."
Coach Hud led his football squad to 9 wins last year which included a bowl game victory.
These wins help tie a school record.
