Morning Clay, I have a question for you on these large buyouts.
Are these new to the coaching game? These Large buyouts that from the outside looking in seem to be a potential program destroying option???
I seem to remember that Bobby P had some large buyout we used to reference all the time when things were going well. But he was fired and no one ever exchanged those type of dollars…
I do know that LSU is paying a buyout to Les Miles and hopes like heck he will coach someplace again so they don’t have to “pay” him…but I also know even that number was worked out and not the number everyone thought.
Also do you think these large buyouts are a product of ADs now being more business CEO types and not ex head coaches that know how the game is played?
Interesting time in coaching and Admin around the UA and college football.
