Kiffin signs a long term deal!

Post

I was reading that the buyout has to be proportional to the salary though I don't know what the average initial base salary:buyout ratio is… 1:3? 1:4?

I am really surprised by the new contract. The way FAU talks about what Kiffin brings here, I was almost wondering if his salary would double. But of course I don't know where that money would come from. Only FAU truly knows what they could pay.

If we had a donor it would be a mute point…unfortunately, we aren't like the Alabama's and Clemson's of the world where someone would just write a check to cover a $1M raise.

Hey Rick I know you have been busy but I just wanted to let you know I am really looking forward to the next podcast for updates on the contract and the new players who are now enrolled for the Fall and any new updates you may have.

Thanks!


Go Owls!

Need LSU and orgeron to be successful this year.  That is the one sec program that could open up and look at Kiffin if things go south this season.  One of the few jobs that would be intriguing enough to leave the intracoastal waterway life.

Oregon ***probably*** would be a little gun shy to have another coaching search again so quickly.  Of course with all the money involved - who knows.

Not sure if you thought I misspelled Oregon, I was speaking of Ed Ogeron (probably misspelled it again) head coach of LSU.  Either way, agree on the Oregon points.

Would be crazy for them to fire him in year 2, but youíre right, thatís the job opening that makes me most nervous. I love coach o so Iíd like to see him have success but I canít fathom they can him after less than 20 games. Itís next year we have to worry about, if by then heís not playing for an SEC Championship theyíll be tired of him and itís the perfect job for Lane. They donít mind a coach with quirks, he gets to fight Lord Saban yearly, money, talent.

If it happens, it means Lane did it again, a good problem to have.†

The big win for us there is that Lane establishes to the coaching world that you can win at FAU. Itís no longer the job it once was, our applicant pool gets significantly better after him thanks to our success.†

Actually, I was reading on my phone and didn't pay close enough attention 😀
