KB and BG signed contract extensions what 2-3 years ago.. If you fire them you have to pay the salary (like the 800k going to Hamdan) while at the same time luring in another expensive coach. USC didn’t keep Helton because they like him they kept him another year for fiduciary reasons.
Another year of them won’t kill us and if Donovan isn’t the guy he’s gone in just 2 seasons.
With the elite high school in-state talent we have this year, and considering what KB/BG have not done in recruiting I would say otherwise.
Even eating their contracts (minus what they would get at wherever they ended up at) and having to pay the two new coaches salaries b/c of the $ difference between what Pete made and JL’s salary we would still be approximately a million less in salary this year than last.
Agree on Donovan. We will know in less than 24 months if he’s the guy or not.
