It appears the Whorns were not able to sway the Gator coach to leave the SEC.
I would guess O’Sullivan got a pay raise out of the interest. The coaches at Louisville and TCU both got pay raises because it was perceived Texas would be interested. Both are now going to make over $1 million per year. As the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported earlier this week, only Augie Garrido made that much this year.
