Arkansas financial obligation to former coaches?
« on: October 16, 2019, 01:11:45 pm »

Former Arkansas coaches Anderson and Bielema have found employment elsewhere.  Mike Anderson is now the head basketball coach at St. John's University.  Bret Bielema is a position coach with the New England Patriots.

To what extent does this employment relieve Arkansas of the obligation to continue to pay these former coaches because of contract termination?

My understanding is that RF payments to BB ended in January. They contended that he had not fulfilled his obligations to seek meaningful employment. With MA, I believe his buyout payments are adjusted for what his new employer pays him. If he makes less than at Arkansas, the RF makes up the difference.

Yep... but I think the BB thing is basically on hold pending legal BS. We stopped paying with a "sue us and prove we're wrong" mentality I think. Not 100% but I'm sure somebody here knows.

He could have found a job if he’d have tried.

Instead he had us subsidize his apprenticeship with the Patriots for him to get Defensive Line coach job.

He could have found a job as a defensive coordinator in college football if he’d have tried, maybe even a HC job at a G5 school. I just don’t think his ego allowed him to do it. He decided to move into the Monopoly money NFL on the RF dime.

Cut cut cut....

That’ll cost you a coach’s buyout, pay on your way out.

So, wouldn’t Chad’s 9.5 million just be a wash if we can get out of CBB payments?

Prolly get hired at Rice as a HC.

They’re good with 1-11 seasons.

Just think, they could be 2-10 and get a big azz check if they had scheduled the hogs.
We couldn't even fry Rice anymore.
