    im not buying he wasn’t prepared. Arrogant and operating the assumption he was the leading candidate? Sure But unprepared? Doubt it.

    it probably had more to do with him throwing his cleats on after lunch

    He was responding to a Notre Dame fan who said Moore to UM was a sure thing. Unlike Tom Loy, we don't think we're getting anybody.

    People can say it's embarrassing that UM gave him a new deal after he wanted to leave for the NFL (and the optics of it look embarrassing), but that deal is great for UM compared to the insanity going on everywhere else in CFB.

    His base salary last year was $4M. He made $2M+ in incentives that he gave back to people who took paycuts in the AD due to COVID.

    This seems like a pretty similar deal with incentives, but the base is up to $7M.

    I'm not sure who is supposed to be embarrassed. Harbaugh was getting a new contract after 2021 and the terms were agreed upon before he had the opportunity to interview with Minnesota. When it became apparent he wasn't being handed an NFL job, he signed the contract. He didn't get a pay raise because he interviewed for the NFL - he had the contract in hand the first week of January - and the guaranteed comp is roughly between James Franklin's and Ryan Day's, and nowhere near Mel Tucker's.

    I don't get the people trying to connect dots on the buyout not being higher, either. Most of these coaches don't have enormous buyouts anymore, and if Harbaugh and the NFL really want each other a year or two from now, a bigger buyout isn't stopping them.

    In fact you could have played it much worse by throwing a fit when he started looking around, instead by acknowledging this is just normal professional Bullshit, everyone is treating it as such

    Not mad at how UM handled this at all. It's not like they were going to fire the guy for looking at the NFL. All you can really do is give the dad "I'm not mad. I'm disappointed" look and make the best out of it if you're UM.

    i was just assuming if you’re going to give a coach a raise that did everything he could to leave your school you’d want to throw a big buyout in there so he doesnt do it again next year

    You have to negotiate "big buyouts". You can't just throw them in there. Go look at the buyout numbers for Jimbo, Tucker, Franklin and Kelly after the deals they signed. You think those schools just didn't think about putting bigger buyouts in those deals?

    I don't think of Day as being the same as Meyer. He has legit NFL experience and doesn't appear to be a sociopath.

    Agree, I just don’t see him translating to the NFL. I mean, generally it’s pretty rare for any of these college coaches to successfully make the jump- especially one’s who had an obvious talent advantage over their competition at the college level.

    Day spent two years as a QB coach for Chip Kelly at Philadelphia and SF. Otherwise, he never played or coached in the NFL.

    He got the NFL job because Kelly was New Hampshire’s OC when Day was their QB.

    Not sure he has a real NFL resume.

    You can make fun of Ryan Day for a lot of things but his personality is pretty different than Urban's.

    He's worked in the NFL for 2 years. It might not be extensive or for a real NFL head coach, but it's there. But my main point if that Day is a different guy than Urban in a number of ways. Mainly in not being a sociopath.
