The vote was 12-0.

Unlike past contracts, the new contract will be a performanced-based contract.

A stipulation that was included in the compromise agreement between Mississippi State and the IHL Board of Trustees was that the IHL Board's College Athletics Committee will be allowed to exam the Mississippi State Athletic Department.
