My theory is that CPJ is trying to sabotage recruiting with a month to go before NSD, so either he gets fired now and cashes in for $10.MM or he gets fired after next season and gets around $7.5MM , it is a sour-puss scorched earth mentality.
For example, when Neuheisel knew he was going to get fired at UCLA, he wouldn't pull Huntley's RS and hurt the program after he was gone and he kept working hard recruiting studs, which is why UCLA has won 9 games last yr. and 10-games this yr.
If CPJ sabotages Recruiting then the next HC will be more likely to fail and therefore make his tenure at GT look even better, CPJ seems to be the kinda guy that won't go quietly.
These are theories of course, after all WHY leak that out to a CFB-writer 1-month before NSD?
What an absolute crock. Speculation without foundation.
