I wonder (where's Skeeza when we need him????) whether money had more to do with it than he's saying. Big payout to Hewitt, big buyout to Gregory, new arena empty.
He completely undermined his coach - maybe he's hoping he'll read it and quit.
I don't see how these ADs paint themselves into these corners. You would think that they would negotiate a very low buyout, or even a no-cost buyout.
Sorry, tjb, but I gotta take this conversation in another direction. I get so sick and tired of hearing how colleges cannot afford to pay athletes, then you hear crap like this, ...
..."the Yellow Jackets are still paying $900,000 a year to previous coach Paul Hewitt, a commitment that runs until 2019"....<<<
People always talk about the "real world", especially when it comes to kids, and the carefrontations. "If they are not producing" so the thought goes, "then it's OK to pull their scholarship. After all, if I wasn't producing at my job, I would be fired". In what real world will someone continue to get almost a million dollars a year, even after they were fired for not producing?
