YOU should get a life and get off the computer. Do you waste the same amount of time on the UConn, Duke and UCF boards too ?

That decision feels similar to Houston's decision to hire Applewhite instead of Kiffin or Riley.

I agree. I don't think Sumlin was looking to settle down in Orlando full-time.

I think this could turn out to be a good hire.

Looks as if Lindsey Scott will now become a UCF target now that Missouri's OC is UCF's new HC....

I just really hope that, no matter what coaches end up leaving the AAC (i.e. Norvell/Strong/etc.), the AAC decides to make some flashy hires of the Kiffin/Sumlin/Miles/Meacham variety.

Wont happen. McKenzie Milton is only a sophomore with two full seasons left. No way Scott's going to sit. And they have two FR and two RS FR on their roster as well.

This may actually end up helping us. If he was interested in Mizzou because of the offense, he may not want to take a chance and sign with them without knowing what the new OCs philosophy is. And UCF doesn't need him.

don't think so...A&M won the national championship one year, in fact it was the year they beat Tulane in the Sugar Bowl
You're right, I meant to write "The Aggies finished the 2012 season ranked in the top 5 of both the Coaches Poll and the AP Poll for the first time since 1956."

I guess Tulane pay is near the bottom. With WF making $1.2 million.
UCF: Head coach Josh Heupel will earn $1.7 million annually (which would rank 7th among AAC head coaches) with a staff salary pool of $2.5 million. If he were to leave before their 2020 bowl game, Heupel would owe UCF a buyout of $10 million.

Looks like Tulane is slightly ahead of ECU, USF and UConn in salary. Temple doesn't report on this list, but their coach was making $1m as an asst at Florida before taking the job, so I'd imagine it's more than what WF's base salary is.

Times have really changed. A $10M buyout for a G5 coach, and its only if he leaves in less than 3 years.

Incentives matter too. Apparently not included in this survey.

Regardless when WF was hired he was mid-range salary in AAC. Inflation from new hires over last two years has moved him down. If and when he wins, he will certainly get a raise and move back up that slippery pole.

That’s what happens when you’re happy about being average and shoot for mid-range. You get mid-range results and usually slip from there. It would be a nice if Tulane actually wanted to be at the top for a change.

And USF doesn’t really count due to Strong’s payments from Texas and how it impacted what USF needed to pay to bring him on board.
