His buyout checks come from the Foundation, right? And thus are not subject to FOI requests? So we don’t actually know how much the school is still paying him or what the offset from the Patriots might be? (Okay, so that’s three questions)
The Razorback Foundation is responsible for the payments. We do not know how much, if any, is being offset from the money owed him. He does have a provision in his contract that allows him to make $125,000 before his salary is subject to be offset.
Here is a guess: the Patriots probably paid Bielema about $125,000.
