Does he talk about the HUGE salaries for coaching kids at the non professional level???????????
He talked about his salary, and said that this is a profession where you never get tenure and it is very easy to get fired. He also said it was very uncomfortable when he had to sit in front of the BOT and they were talking about him and whether he was worth the salary while he was sitting there.
Of course he's worth it, that's why they pay him that much. Good for him for this interview.
He is the son of the former Indy Colts NFL GM.
He moves around a lot, even by modern CFB standards.
I am stunned by his rapid ascent.
I was corresponding with him in Dec 2011/ Jan 2012 about a Stanford prospect (film, HS transcripts, etc).
At that time he was the recruiting coordinator and ST coach at Stanford. All of a sudden, the correspondence ended.
I found out that he had left.
If he gets Nevada to a bowl game he is out of there.
I knew you would say that.
But in college football coaching, I do actually think that rule applies. These guys are getting paid their fair market value. A good coach brings in a ton of money to the university, and frankly most of their salary isn't even coming from the university. A worthwhile investment, IMO.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
First year coach replacing pistol offense legend / Hall of Fame coach Chris Ault. $475k base and he will need to prove himself. The last coach that replaced Ault (he retired and then came back) didn't make it. I agree if he wins, his name will get him a bigger gig, but if he isn't successful, this could be his peak.
Well yeah. You know me so well
Fantastic interview, I really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting
