Win a road game. Just one.
Are you suggesting that he's coaching on the last year of his contract this coming season??that's most likely his total compensation package; salary, radio/media appearances and any incentives
again, drives home that ISU will let his contract run before a retention decision is made; lotta $$ to pay if he's fired early
As I've not found a record of his contract being extended; yes, I'm suggesting that he is in fact entering his last year under contract.Are you suggesting that he's coaching on the last year of his contract this coming season??
I don't think that is the case... I would say he's already been granted a 1-3 year extension meaning he will be here for the next 2-4 years with his current year left. My guess is the only reason for that not being made public at this point is this COVID situation - just not good timing to release that information.
The only thing that would make me hesitate to believe that would be the multiple 5th year guys. For two reasons - I've got to win THIS YEAR to keep my job and I don't want to get or am struggling to get commitments from kids who would be here beyond next seasons because of his contract situation.
I agree that ISU would let his contract run out before they fired him - because as we've said for 4 years now they can't afford to fire him (for multiple reasons not just his contract). I think he earned a short extension last year - likely looking at 2 year extension.
Nothing is on public record... That doesn't mean a decision hasn't been made?? He may be entering his last year as far as the general public is concerned as of right now.As I've not found a record of his contract being extended; yes, I'm suggesting that he is in fact entering his last year under contract.
I think any role that the COVID_19 pandemic has played is it's "ability" in NOT allowing the ISU leadership to gather in a room and discuss
Time will tell if he has been extended
I understand that - which is why I don't think they've released any information. I'd probably have been less shocked if they fired him as I would be if they let him coach with only a year left on his contract. That would be a pretty interesting scenerio/enviorment for him and his players to be in... Which is why I figured I'd interject with my thoughts.Agree -- a decision may have been made; if it has, so be it.
I'm not going to worry if they have or have not; if he's been extended, I'm OK with that decision
if no decision has been made, I'm OK with that decision
This is not a life or death issue -- we've got far, FAR more of those at them moment
What is a reasonable price to you? If we're talking about getting the position in line with the conference, he needs a pay raise.I just hope they get to keep him at a reasonable price. He earned it in 2019 and has been getting better players. My concern is that we have an effective PG next year.
He shouldn't and not a single fan should want him to. That sets the position back. The goal should always be to move the program forward and the sooner our coaching position is near the league average, the better.I get the impression that GL will accept a home town discount. If not bye-bye.
Not only some sort of raise or even the raise discount, Lansing knows the economic/money problems he has. There should be better pay for the assistants, larger budget to recruit etc and the numerous items mentioned by SOM today. Coach has done a better than average job and I will restate an exceptional one with the constraints he has.He shouldn't and not a single fan should want him to. That sets the position back.
