As recent at Nov. 13 of this season, Trent Miles had compiled an unimpressive 3-29 record at Georgia State.
It just so happens that Nov. 13 fell on a Friday, which might explain how the Panthers then all of a sudden ripped off four straight double digits wins. During their winning streak, Georgia State outscored their opponents 130-57.
He led the Panthers to a 6-6 record and they will play in the AutoNation Cure Bowl on December 19. He was also named the Sun Belt Coach of the Year.
As a result, Miles and Georgia State are talking contract extension.
“We have had a fantastic season,” Georgia State athletics director Charlie Cobb told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “What I think has made this season a success is the coaches, players and everyone involved in the program have stayed in the moment. After the bowl game we will have big-picture conversations about how we make the program better.”
The Panthers will return 16 starters in 2016 and is expected to compete for the Sun Belt conference title next season.
Miles has two years remaining on a five-year deal he signed upon taking the job after the 2012 season.
