I didn't want to hijack the thread that the following link was posted in, but here's CPJ's contract (including the extension after the '09 season) from the Coaches Hot Seat site: http://www.coacheshotseat.com/CHSGeorgiaTech.pdf Assuming this is legit, some interesting notes: CPJ only received a 1 year extension after the '09 season CPJ's entire contract is guaranteed (I assume from the '09 extension) The majority of CPJ's annual compensation comes from "Radio TV" appearances (>50%) and not his base salary (~14%) As of the 2011 season, CPJ gets an annual 3% increase in total compensation CPJ's contract expires December 31, 2015 I think the last point is very important, as it makes next season (as others on this site have pointed out) without a doubt, CPJ's make or break season. He will either be extended or fired after the 2014 season, as we will not have a "lame duck" coach going into the 2015 season. With a "lame duck"head coach, the staff would really struggle in recruiting as there would be no indication that they'd even be there to see the kids step foot on campus the following year. Also, the question(s) I have are in regards to the buyouts listed on page 27. The way it looks to me is that the buyout sum for each year is the total compensation for that year plus those of the remaining years of his contract (basically guarantees CPJ his salary of that year and any remaining). So then wouldn't CPJ's buyouts really be $5.255M currently and $2.667M after next season? I would assume we would already be paying him that year's compensation in installments during the course of the year (i.e. he has already received most if not all of his 2013 compensation). Am I reading this right? Not trying to push any agenda here, just trying to truly understand the financial situation Tech is in.
