    How stupid can we be?

    The University is facing a $4.6 million mid-year budget cut and more than twice that for next year. Not to mention our students are at risk of losing scholarships and financial aid, we can't hire new faculty, SACS is saying our accreditation is at risk, and much more.

    Yet our AD is negotiating a new deal for our head football coach (Tech's highest paid employee) when he has 2 years remaining on his $500K plus incentives and benefits on his current contract, and we aren't at risk of anyone hiring him away.

    How stupid can our AD be?

    How about turning a 2 year deal into a 4 or 5 year deal? I don't see anything wrong with this.

    ...except that we are probably going to pay him "Dykes money". We could have waited until next fall when this budget mess dies down a little. Having our non-diplomatic AD out there as the face of LaTech during a budget crisis is not wise IMO.

    Exactly. Skip isn't signing a new contract without a pay raise. You don't tell the Monroe and Shreveport newspapers that you expect to finalize a new deal for the head football coach (the university's highest paid employee & one of only a few under contract) by the end of the month when the university is in an unprecedented financial crisis with professors who haven't had a raise in 9 years facing furloughs and students fearful of losing scholarships and financial aid. That earns our AD an F- in PR 101.

    Renegotiating with 2 years left turns into 1 year left. Quit overreacting. Now is the time to do it.

    The bright side may be that our President will call a strike on him. Not sure how many, but after looking at the report it should be strike 2.

    Who cares about the money crisis? Just keep on borrowing money, Obama does it.

    No the time to do it is at or near the end of football season when it is evident to recruits that we are committed to the staff they are being recruited by. It will be old news by November and if he happens to have a bad year...

    Exactly. Now is the absolute worst time to give Skip a new deal.

    Maybe Texas Tech was trying to hire him as a special teams coach.

    Like Sonny Dykes did? We just had a recruit decommit because of uncertainty. There is no time like the present.

    The Dykes renegotiation was not necessary. That was a BVDV panic.

    So we should renegotiate to show our commitment and prevent more 17 year olds for "decommitting"? Because we know we can trust them to do what they say if our coach has a 5 year deal now instead of in November.

    Re: How stupid can we be?

    Or we could be renegotiating to get some of the Coordinators/Assistants on contracts tied to Skip's as well...
