How many years until he's fired? 1, 2, or 3?
Won't happen, they would have to pay him more than $15 million to do it. They are married now for better or worse.
That's exactly why I ask. It's now guaranteed to happen.
His contract, as I understood it, was already guaranteed for 5 years and auto-renewed every year that he won 8 games or more. Buyout was capped at somewhere north of $18 million if he were fired. I wonder what this gets him? Maybe up the buyout and guarantee for 7 years with 8 wins or more?
There are new performance clauses - I'm sure if he keeps winning like he has in the past he will make well over $4 million a year. He's probably making over $4 right now.
You have lost me, I don't understand your logic?
But wait I thought valdez said they would fire him if he lost ONE game in 2010. :lol:
There are still some people who are convinced that he was about to come to Colorado.
Fire him? Doubtful... LSU fans will probably kill him before he gets fired.
Good move by him.
Didn't they actually meet in Dallas?
Les is good coach. He's a little nutty but he wins a lot of games. Had one bad year in 2009 and rebounded this year although lost the Arkansas game which is disappointing.
Miles and Chavis had a brain lock on the touchdown pass with a few seconds left in the 1st half of the Arky game. Why they didn't pull all their DB's back about 40 yards with just a few seconds left is still the $60,000 question in Baton Rouge. He's a good coach, but he sometimes has brain farts - Ole Miss 2009, and Tenn last year. He was 9 -4 in 2009 - his worst year at LSU. Would have been 10 - 3 if it wasn't for that mud pit they played the Capitol One bowl in.
Completely negated their team speed. I'm glad he's staying in Baton Rouge. I don't know
where he met with Michigan, probably was in Dallas or Baton Rouge, only that they offered him a ton of money, and he turned them down.
What a shame too. How could that give that squib an extension? All those 9+ win seasons are really taking their toll. Afterall, it's a dumb idea to retain the winningest coach in school history. Sheesh.
He just got rid of his OC Gary Crowton. Didn't fire him - he was forced to take another job, will be OC at Maryland. Guy is another " Short Bus" Watson. Something he should have done last year. If he can get the offense cranking
he could easily have more 11 win seasons.
