Scott contract details

He will make $340,000 per year, which is a $40,000 increase over what Rory Segrest was paid last season. Scott also signed a no-compete clause that prohibits him from taking a non-head coach or coordinator position within the SEC. His contract runs through June 30, 2018, which is the typical contract for most assistants and university employees.

Also, I rechecked today on Paul Rhoads’ new salary and was told nothing has been agreed to yet. Remember that Rhoads still is receiving money from his Iowa State buyout. That might mean he agrees to take less from Arkansas and allows the Razorbacks to bump the assistant salaries more for a few years.

Ohio State did this with Greg Schiano while he was receiving payments from the Buccaneers.

Yeah, no offset in his buyout, much like Bielema’s. Partridge will take a $800,000 hit if he accepts a job from his $1M buyout. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Partridge took the year off. That’s not uncommon for head coaches to do after they’ve been fired. They are being paid and it gives them a chance to spend some time with family that isn’t there when they are coaching.

He is definitely in a good place to be unemployed, but with lots of cash flow.

And if the new DL coach doesn’t work out, there’s always next year.
