    How much can we pay?

    Chiz was making $1.2M so that should be bottom dollar. Since we are getting 750k from AU, If you split that over 2 years that puts it close to $1.6M.

    I think that is about where we are at, JP can offer $1.5 - $1.6 comfortably and hope excitement generates the additional revenue needed beyond year 2.

    I just don't think we can get to $2M (unless some donor is very generous).

    Is $1.5-$1.6 enough to get a Holtz, Patterson, Stoops, etc.??? Uphill battle I would guess.

    Thoughts?

    I would guess around $1.5M with a nice signing bonus thanks to Auburn.

    Re: How much can we pay?

    With extras we have to get to $2mil to get Holtz. It will take over $2mil to get Patterson b/c thats what Minny offered him and he turned it down.

    Holtz was offered $12 million from Syracuse and he turned it down..dont know how many years that was though.

    Re: How much can we pay?

    I think the pay range will be determined by who we hire. If JP can pull off getting some real big name to come to Ames I think he could find the money to pay him.

    Keep in mind that if we go after a current head coach we very well might have to use the 750k from AU to pay for a buyout to whoever we hire.

    But I'd agree about 1.5 sounds right.

    Re: How much can we pay?

    I think we should offer at least $10 million. Then when it comes time to pay, we can fly to Washington and ask for a federal bailout.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Ughhh...I didn't even think about us having to pay a buyout possibly. That would bite.

    Yeah, me neither. Good point. But at least we get it paid for by Auburn.

    Re: How much can we pay?

    With incentives, Chizik's contract was $10.2 M over 6 years or $1.7M/year....our budget is now $13 million more...I think we can get to $2 million though it may be tight....

    Re: How much can we pay?

    Im thinking we can easily pay 2 million a year for the RIGHT man. I think he shouldve just called up Turners agent after he was denied to talk to him and said "2 million a year" and hung up.

    Re: How much can we pay?

    Are they too far along on the east side of JTS to stop and use the money for a coach? I don't know about the rest of you, but I eat enough tailgating that I don't go to the concession stands, and they can just bring in a bunch more ****ters if they already tore the restrooms down.

    Re: How much can we pay?

    I'm hoping it's a lot closer to $2m than $1m. At least, based on what that money usually buys you.

    But if we get what looks to be a great coach for closer to $1m, I won't complain.

    I think Pollard was bracing us for a much larger contract based on his presser comments.

    Re: How much can we pay?

    If Pollard decides to pay the big buck to the next coach, I hope it does means 1 of 2 things at least.

    1. The coach is worth that money. Has head coaching experience and wants to create something special.

    2. If we pay that much, then I hope that will encourage the coach to stick around and not use this place as a stepping stone.

    Dude, I don't know you but if you mean you and me I suspect not even $10/month for CycloneReport so this guy better be in it for the love of the game. Seriously.
