    JP ?? $800K buyout or keep GMAC

    If you were JP, would you give up some or all of the 800K buyout on GMac's contract just to get rid of him? Or would you stick to your guns and demand the $800K with the chance that is a deal breaker and you keep GMac for another year just to pay him $2 million to fire him?


    I forget the $800K and help Gmac pack his bags & clear out his office. Boosters will buck up the money for a new Coach because of the HOPE that comes with it. The $800K would be lost in ticket sales next year.

    yes.

    I may even be willing to thrown in Hardees coupons to Creighton if they will take him.

    honestly if this is it what is holding this up, I say the 800K is negotiable...I would take 0 and be fine with it

    I'm making moving arrangements. No need to argue over buyout.

    I'd try to get enough to buyout the assistant staff and waive the rest.

    Re: JP ?? $800K buyout or keep GMAC

    he's breaking his contract, make him pay up, he's only leaving because he knows he screwed after this season.

    I think JP told him (something like) win this upcoming year or you're done, and McD probably knows it would be better to get out now, instead of get fired.

    Installments with interest - that way ISU could maybe bring in close to a $1 mil over a 2-3 year span.

    Re: JP ?? $800K buyout or keep GMAC

    If the contract they are reporting is true, 10 years for $9 million, I doubt the 800K is getting in the way.

    Yea, he's screwed alright, another 800,000+ to coach us this year and then 2 million to do nothing if he got fired next year. I wish I was screwed in my job.

    Re: JP ?? $800K buyout or keep GMAC

    How much did Creighton get from Oregon ?
    I'd say, try to recoup 800k but if they are willing to cover the cost of assistant coaches' termination, I'd take it. Like you say: the 800k will be recoup next season.

    Re: JP ?? $800K buyout or keep GMAC

    Get enough to pay off the assistant obiligations, cost of the search, and mvong the new guy and be done.

    My guess is that this negotiation is holding things up.
