    But I would not hate Brent Pry.
    Would he even talk to us? Wasn't he used as the scapegoat during Bustle's tenure?

    I don't think Brent would take this job.

    Totally different regime now, though.

    I agree with you 100%. As of today he has a job and unless A&M fires him mid season no reason for us to let go of our coach mid season either. I don't know if this guy would even have the conversation with our school, that is a coaching grave yard, when he is trying to resurrect his career.

    Ohio had no shot in 2005 of landing a guy just fired by Nebraska, but they were too stupid to know that and hired Frank Solich anyway.

    Not sure that's a good comparison for Kevin Sumlin. Solich started his college coaching career at Nebraska in 1979 after a 12 year stint in the HS ranks. The only place he's been other than Nebraska is Ohio. He was older and probably looking for his last coaching job and a place to retire from.... KS on the other is younger and I'd guess has a desire to get another P5 job. I don't know if you've paid attention over the last 50 yrs this ain't a good place if you want to do that. If KS is ready to take his last HC job and then retire this might be a good fit for him. If he has aspirations of a better job then I wouldn't count on him even interviewing.

    There is no guarantee Sumlin will be even available. There is a good chance he stays at A&M if they continue to improve. Their overtime win against Arkansas may set them up for a successful SEC campaign.

    You are correct in one of my previous post I stated sumlin has a job and at this point he is not looking.

He has probably been the most successful coach in Idaho since the cajuns started playing them years ago. I da ho is not a very easy place to recruit to. He would have way more talent closer to home here than in there.

    Is this a coach worth looking at?

    Plus Beau Baldwin is only making $570k at Cal as OC. $650k here would be a huge pay raise.

    John Grass is making $251k if he reaches all of his bonus criteria.

    Then give them a salary pool for assistants that would be competitive with the upper echelon of the G5.

    Making $570k in Lafayette, La instead of Berkeley, CA would be a huge pay raise.

    I agree 100000%, the entire pay structure of the staff should be revamped.
    Does anyone have the pay disparity handy to post?

    Cajun coaching staff = Saints Roster (minus the dead money).
    One dude, making all the money makes it hard to spread around the quality of hire around them.

    I don't think our next coach will make as much as hud on day one. What is the number we should start at here. Can't start at a million makes it hard to give raises for success

    Assistant pool was around $1,000,000 last I had heard. Coordinators were around $150K with assistants ranging from $120K down to $100K. Before Jay Johnson left, he was around $200K.

    Base salary IMO should be between $575-$675k with bonus money tied to certain standards being met. Bringing the total compensation up to $975k. Keeps the salary/buyout lower and increases incintives. If I were to structure the contract a Sun Belt outright title would be worth $100k.

    Most people considering the move from there to here don't fully appreciate the value add until they actually make the move.
