I already stated that I don't see Oregon or Oregon State's head coaches as realistic for the Texas job (should it open up). But, for those who believe Oregon has all this "Nike" money to help pay its head coaches, that has proven to be a myth. Seems like that money goes to facilities and uniforms, but not making the coaches' salaries nationally competitive.Lol, He will retire from here. Has a nice extra home in Bend Oregon. Some people are not all about money but for others like Mike White it was as much as I can haul in attitude. Surprising why some can't see that.
So Texas throwing money left and right does not make a good return on investment.
Not gonna get into further discussions with someone who is clearly bitter that the Oregon AD would not pay former Ducks' Head Coach, Mike White, his market value, and Texas was able to hire him for a Top 5 national salary. As it turned out, the Oregon AD had to pay his new hire (someone with zero head coaching experience) more than Coach White was making; so, he got left with egg on his face, no doubt.
