LSU def. coordinator Chavis has 1-year extension
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU athletic officials say defensive coordinator John Chavis has received a one-year extension through the 2015 season.
LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette says the extension, first reported by The Advocate of Baton Rouge, pays Chavis the same $1.3 million salary he gets right now.
Chavis' previous three-year contract was set to expire at the end of 2014.
However, the unit has thrived during LSU's current three-game winning streak, giving up only three touchdowns in that span.
During Chavis' previous five seasons, his defense ranked in the top 12 nationally three times.
