He is available correct? How much do you think it would take to get him here? I think it is possible and maybe our best choice and hope, if needed.

It would take some big bucks, but he might solve our problems. He can get some strategic help from his pops and brother.

Technically he's available. But not on our budget. We would have to overpay by a bunch to get him to come coach in the WAC for a team with essentially no TV exposure. Who's going to be our biggest conference rival - Rice? Tulsa?

It would probably cost $2 million per. And that's probably at least five times what we'll pay another coach.

I hate to say this, but we will need to dish out 800,000+ per year for a good coach. Anything less would not cut it. Even if 8-900000 is the base pay, there will have to be a bunch of clauses, so we will be dishing out more than that per year. This is IF we want to bring a winning program.
