I certainly am not in the stream of inside information. All of my assessments are strictly from years of watching this type stuff over and over again, plus the things I hear from fans and boards. However, history keeps repeating itself. My guess is that some of this information is correct and some is incorrect. You can be sure if a bit of information leaked out and is detrimental to the situation, the author of the information will have to deny it or downplay it, until a solution is reached. Maybe PJ said some of this stuff and maybe he didn't but, it is easy to see a coach, being bombarded by the fans, wanting to get out and get it over with. In discussions about a situation such as this the feelings of the coach and the feelings of the Boosters often sway back and forth, until a solution is reached.
Take a situation where the fans want the coach to go; he tells the boosters, "Just pay me off, and I will go". The boosters then state they do not want to do this, but would like to evaluate at the end of next year. The coach then would not get his guaranteed pay if he quit, so he decides to work out the next year and improve the team. Of course, he would then deny he wanted to be paid off, because it would not go well with recruits or fans. It becomes a matter of damage control. So, maybe there is some truth to the statements, and maybe not. You can bet your bottom dollar that the boosters, AD, and coach are all discussing the issue and are trying to resolve it to the benefit of all. I would guess there will be an official statement in the near future issued by the AD regarding this whole situation. If all decides he will stay for next year, then they will all agree to a statement that the boosters, AD, and the coach are in agreement that the team is the most important item and they all agree for the coach to stay and try to correct all the problems.
