I understand the budget issues UW is having like every other college, but PK left for 1.7 M and 3 years which is only 400K more and 1 year extra than what he had here.
Cohen said that whatever Jimmy needed for money he would get.
We upped Lake’s salary twice when Saban tried to poach him and iirc the salary bump at least the 1st time was greater than PK’s to Texas.
Considering half of Lake’s staff is on the beginning intern salary plan, and asst. coach salary is down over a million from two years ago, this wasn’t about money. It was there if we wanted to match it and Pete K wanted to stay.
For whatever reason he didn’t and lends credence to rumblings of friction between the two.
