Tulane co-defensive coordinator Jon Sumrall confirmed a report Monday that he was offered the defensive coordinator position at San Jose State but declined it, preferring to remain with the Green Wave.

Sumrall, who also coaches defensive line, and all of the coaches on head coach Curtis Johnson’s staff, received salary increases when Johnson signed a contract extension in December. Part of Johnson’s package and agreement with the university allowed him to up the compensation for his assistants.

Sumrall was an original hire on the Johnson staff and Johnson has been able to retain all of his salaried assistants since accepting the head coach position in December 2011
