Each weekend, we’ll try to catch you up on some happenings around the SEC. This is out first installment, so look for this report each Saturday and catch up on league news!

Florida Extensions

The University of Florida has given both head football coach Jim McElwain and head basketball coach Mike White one year extensions and raises. McElwain is now the 5th highest paid head coach in the SEC, making 4.4 million annually. His deal runs through the 2022 season. White is now inked through 2023, making 2.7 million annually.

Vanderbilt lands four star receiver

Camron Johnson committed to Vanderbilt on Friday. He’s the number one receiver from the state of Tennessee out of Brentwood. Johnson did have an offer from Tennessee among others. That’s a pretty big recruiting victory for Derek Mason.

Pat Dye rips Auburn

The quote is now infamous. “We could play for another 500 years and not catch up to Alabama’s tradition.” The comment was made on Paul Finebaum’s radio show. Needless to say, Auburn fans weren’t thrilled. This comes off the comments that Dye made about Auburn moving to the SEC East. At least he’s keeping things fresh for us over the Summer.
