    Coaching contracts

    This goes back a few months when we discussed Mac's extension and if it was open to litigation. To me I think it is and it will be. Both sides will end up in court someday and a smaller than 2.5 million buyout will be negotiated. Those hating on JP need to read this and understand it's not as black and white as you think.

    Re: Coaching contracts

    Is there language in McD's contract that would that might give Pollard cause to not have to pay him his whole salary? Lack of institutional control is in there I bet, and were not too far away from that with too many more defections. But what else?

    Re: Coaching contracts

    When the contract says:

    Mcdermott is responsible for evaluating, recruiting, training, and coaching student athletes to compete successfully against major college competition in a quality mens basketball program

    Is being one of just a few teams to not make the postseason in those few years really 'competing successfully against major college competition'? Seems like one could make the contract is already broken on his end...

    Of course you've gotta handle it smart... dont want to get an image, fair or not, among coaches that we will try not to honor our contracts...

    Very true...but I think the coaching field would understand the difference between canning a guy who has failed miserably and just canning someone for no reason.

    To me at this point it shouldn't shock anyone if he's let go. If Colvin leaves that's the straw bale that fell on the camel on the ground with a broken back.

    Re: Coaching contracts

    I don't think GMac will get fired, so there is nothing to litigate.

    However, I also don't think it would take the full $2.5 million. These things can get settled out. JP and ISU still have some leverage to sit down with GMac and his agent/manager and get him to step down. GMac would want to get on with his career, and playing hardball with ISU/JP doesn't make any sense. GMac is already going to be impacted in his ability to recruit and retain assistants due to the "lame duck" perception. If he and ISU administration get sideways over an unwillingness to be reasonable on a negotiated settlement, JP can hang GMac out and the situation will worsen. Coaching and school community is a small one and it wouldn't help GMac in his future endeavors.

    I would think they could get this done for $1.5 million, maybe $2.0 million paid out over a few years with a "clawback" clause that the last year or two of payments are waived if GMac gets another job that pays $500k+. Have no idea if it is in the works, but have to think JP has at least been taking the pulse of the donor pool to see if that money is out there.

    GMac and his family will be financially secure for life, and he can move on to the next chapter. ISU can get a needed fresh start.

    Re: Coaching contracts

    Question - where would McD go? He will not want to resign. Heck, he can drive up the road and watch his boy play for the next four years.

    Yet, I wonder what the graduation rate stats will be when he is done. He may end up worse than Wayne.

    Yes, he is and I think he's got in under control. Too many ppl freaked out thinking we were "locked" in to this contract. We're not, everything is open to negotiation.

    My opinion is JP was very smart and wrote the contract in a way it could easily be negotiated if it came to a buyout.
