According to Forbes:
"He doesn't have an expensive buyout."
Interesting take, lol.
I'd say with the inherent risks of bodily harm, brain damage, etc.., that the players are underpaid and that the coaches'/owners' share is too large.It is absurd to pay this much money to coaches. It is way beyond reasonable. This is one reason I refuse to watch any pro games; the salaries for the pro players are also ridiculous.
Any more risky than a fire fighter? How does that salary comparison work out?I'd say with the inherent risks of bodily harm, brain damage, etc.., that the players are underpaid and that the coaches'/owners' share is too large.

The Forbes guy musta missed the last CPJ contract extension. It's a $10+ million buyout (100% of contract value) if he's let go after this season, I think. Waaay too rich for my blood.
He's also our OC.
I agree about market value affecting salaries 100%. But that's not what I was responding to with my comment. If you're gonna piggyback in a conversation, you need to be aware of what and who people are responding to.Go look at a 70 y/o firefighter and then go look at a 70 y/o former NFL player, if that NFL player is still alive, then do a comparison?
Also, there is no Firefighter Channel on my cable package, so the marketplace is not interested in them enough to elevate their salaries like Pro Athletes..
Has it occurred to you that it takes offering 40% of our coaching budget to lure any half decent coach to GT?9. Paul Johnson
Salary: $2.5 million
Football budget: $16.5 million
Team: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
An innovator of the triple option scheme, Johnson has had a decent track record at Georgia Tech, collecting one BCS bowl appearance in six seasons. He doesn't have an expensive buyout, but he is paid nearly 40% of the school's coaching expenses.
The reason CPJ is on that list is because GT cannot really afford him, our GTAA has a relatively small budget in comparison to the other schools on that list.
To have one guy that is paid 40% of a school's coaching expenses put a lot of pressure on that HC to win big, and he has not done that in a long time.

I'd bet that over the next decade it will be revealed that effectively every NFL player is suffering from some amount of brain damage.Any more risky than a fire fighter? How does that salary comparison work out?
I am sorry to the board for enabling someone's agenda. My bad.If we cannot afford that level of HC then we should have called his bluff when Auburn did NOT call him.
in 6 years vs. D1-A competition, CPJ is 39-31, (.557)CPJ has played 9 lower level cupcakes in 6 years.
in 6 years vs. D1-A competition, CCG was 41-32, (.562)Chan played 3 lower level cupcakes in 6 years.
seems like both of these guys qualifies as half-decent, so why did we fire one, but when the current guy performs at a half-decent level, there's no hot seat and he seems to have plenty of job security.
Chan's last 4 years that got him fired 30-21
CPJ's last 4 years that have him very secure at GT 28-24
My point for posting all those stats is, do we even know what constitutes half-decent anymore?
It seems as is the GTAA has lower standards for our FB coach current-day than we had for our FB coach just 6 short years ago, are our standards going down for what we expect from GT FB?
