Kiffin signs a long term deal!
dusky256fc saidExactly, he will wait for the big pay day and I think we are talking about 12-15 guaranteed over 3 year. Thatís a big difference than 980k per year. Even if he fails, which I donít believe he will he and his kids are set. I donít think heíll get that type of offer after this year unless we go undefeated which I donít see happening with OU to open but there is a slim chance. Not to mention UCF but that is a complete unknown with an entirely new staff.Posted On: May 13th 2018, 12:33 PM
I agree that he will likely chase the money at some point. I don't think he needs to, or that his lifestyle will change. He is probably pretty well set financially. He has already held multiple high profile jobs with big salaries upward of $500K per year. People seem to be diminishing what a $1 million per year salary is. He will make more in three years at FAU than most people do in their entire lives.
Again, I am not predicting what he will do. I am just trying to point out that $1 million per year salary with pretty low expectations is a very good situation to be in.

He doesn’t care between 1m and 2m, he definitely cares between 1m and 5m per year. C’mon dude.
Enjoy him while he’s here, again I believe longer than most of our opponents think.
ďIím not driven by money anymore." ďIím not driven by ego, of the attention being a head coach at one of those places. Iím very happy here on all fronts."
"The only drive is when you do see Kirby [Smart], you see Coach [Nick] Saban walk out on that field before the game, the national championship, holding that trophy. Itís the drive of, OK, I get to play against the best, letís see if I can beat the best.
"Itís different. That would not be what I would have answered even five years ago. Because your ego ó once you get rid of that, you have different motivations.Ē
The White Elephant in the room (forum) is a powerhouse program possibly offering him a head job…Michigan, UF, UT, Alabama, LSU, Ohio State, Penn State, or Clemson.
Who else would he leave for - seriously?? And is THAT going to happen? I mean, yes, it could. But I don't see it right now.
Given that, I just take people at their word until they prove that is not reliable…
Any other program would not align to what he says he is motivated by.
Like you, i am glad he is here…
