Georgia State HC Trent Miles’ contract to be discussed at conclusion of season

The Georgia State Panthers have had minimal success since first fielding a team in 2010. In the last month, the Panthers have turned their season around, winning three straight games for the first time in their first season.

The team is 5-6 and will get to bowl eligibility for the first time in school history with a win over rival Georgia Southern on Saturday. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the school will discuss head coach Trent Miles’ contract at the conclusion of the season.

“I think you have to look at the total picture,” athletic director Charlie Cobb said. “We’re certainly excited about how the season is ending, but we have a game to play on Saturday and then let’s evaluate the total package of where we are.”

Miles signed a five-year deal with the Panthers in 2013 with a base salary of $450,000, which jumped to $463,500 in July of this year.

Miles came to Atlanta in 2013 from Alma Mater Indiana State and went 1-23 in his first two seasons with the team. However, if they Panthers can pull off the upset on Saturday, it will more than likely give Cobb enough to keep him around.
