I'm concerned about hiring a coach away from another school at this late date. However, I think we will understand more about the move following the press conference tomorrow. Remember there were concerns about the firing of BP until after Jeff Long's press conference, and then it all made sense. I'm hoping for better clarification after tomorrows press conference. The players seem very happy, so from that stand point it is a good move.
@Hogitall Maybe it's a rental? And Smith will go back to Weber St at the end of the year? lol Who knows.
Rental? Not a bad idea. : ) .. a coaches rent-a-center.
Seriously, I'm wondering if JLS is thinking about early retirement (currently 63 yrs old). I heard on one of the sports shows that JLS' salary at WS was around 130-140K. The salary at UofA is 850K + bonus opportunities. Let's say the Hogs have a good year and his total take is 1M. It would take 7 yrs at WS to make what he could make in 1 yr at UofA. Even if he stays only one year he is still ahead of the game money wise at the age of 64. I think 900k would hold him over until age 65.
