But, it's only been one year. We have been bitten in the recent past by extending coaches at the first signs of success (Hawkins and KMM). Those mistakes were costly mistakes in every way, from finances to win/loss record to the national perception of our programs. So, what do we do with Boyle? Option A: Nothing. Make him show it for another year or two. Option B: Lock him up long-term. Past mistakes can't make you gun shy. Option C: 1-year extension. Replace the year served on his contract with an extra year plus a raise based on the performance this season.
