    Curious to see the term and the buyout. While we can afford to pay the annual salary, idk if we have the type of donors that would fork over $50m+ to fire somebody.

    That said, extending him is a really easy decision if we plan on being a mid tier or better program.

    Who cares what he makes? The same people who paid for his extension will pay his buyout. It's monopoly money to these people.

    I personally don’t give a rat’s ass. It’s just crazy considering this is really his one successful season as a head coach.

    Agreed. Ishbia seems ready to spend whatever is needed for MSU.

    Hopefully it never comes to that, but I'm not so sure. A large one time outlay of dead money is going to hit different than a little bit each year.

    With the season he’s having you have to give him a raise, right

    Yes, or risk him leaving. It's the same fucking game Franklin's been playing every other year. Thankfully, this year he has to eat a bowl of shit.

    Except from what we have heard we are likely still going to give him an extension and/or somewhat of a raise since it was being negotiated in September.

    It would be unethical not to. You don't want to be caught acting unethically in college football, do you?

    Regardless of the fact that he doesn't deserve a raise, him accepting a deal for less than he thinks he deserves still makes me happy.

    Tucker? I'm not arguing that he shouldn't get a raise. Good for him. For MSU, it's the price to keep a coach and just kind of is what you have to do.

    That's what I thought, but the responses after seemed to be talking about Tucker.

    No one is trying to hire Harbaugh, so there's no reason for Michigan to give him a raise. If an NFL team wants to hire him in January, he'll probably get a raise (or take the NFL job).

    Every once in a while I come in this thread and it’s utterly depressing to watch Ohio State fans bitch about all their holes and problems.

    Meanwhile my dipshit program has gone down such a dark rabbit hole that moral victories and keeping it close are considered getting a blow job from a 10 when reality is more like watching a 3 give a blow job on a blackberry.

    I’m actually fine with it. Not a good year to hire a coach. Good recruiting class. Whatever. He doesn’t deserve it but it is what it is. He sucks on gameday but all things considered does the rest of the job pretty well and is pushing our program forward immensely from an investment perspective, which will help long term.

    Because CFB coaches and their agents have convinced schools for well over a decade that if they aren't under contract at least 5 years into the future there's just no possible way they can recruit players due to a lack of certainty.

    I get the restlessness with the status quo, but there aren’t a whole lot of “it” coaches in this cycle that would be demonstrably better out of the gate.

    Things get interesting next year if Jacksonville doesn’t improve and Meyer gets canned/quits. Not sure Penn State is an option, but someone will be looking at him in 2022 or 2023.

    I'd be terrified of hiring a coach this offseason (other than Hafley). I still think Campbell is probably a good coach, but it's scary out there

    PSU and RU rivals guy reporting
    “Word over in State College is there is a pretty big extension on the table with an agreement on facility upgrades tied in as well.”

    in another post he states it’s a 10 year deal.

    If it stops Franklin from having his agent float rumors of other schools being interested in him, it is worth it.
