To those who say Moorhead is impossible to get - I say nonsense. Nothing is impossible. It just takes money
Yup… His assistant coach salary pool @ Mississippi State was $3.6m in his last year.The salary for Moorhead should be in the range for us.
The real issue is the budget to hire the staff that you need. He’s not coming here if he can’t get that.
Secondly, he’s a hot commodity. He will be able to do a bunch better than us considering where he is now and how it is so high profile,
Now that I think about it. This isn’t going to happen. I’m not going to get my hopes up.
Sure everyone has a price but he's not giving UConn any hometown discount out of sentimentality.Everyone has a price. What is his price to come to UConn?
This is half of my point.I'm sorry but I don't see any way UConn is willing to put a package like that together
I'm not so sure. I think schools will be cautious about hiring him as a HC because of his short tenure at Mississippi St. even though it was probably a bad fit from the start. I do think he will get big offers that would double his pay to be OC for some high paying P5 schools. If he wants to be a top P5 coach in the future, he may need to accept a G5 HC job in order to prove himself again.He’s not coming here, he will have his pick of several quality P5 schools. We need to snuff out this dream..,.with all due respect
I’m leaning towards Kevin Kelley now. We don’t have to break the bank and based on the salary we’ll give him, he can get get a nice salary pool for some good coaches.We should be offering him no less than 4 million per year. 4.5 million per year over the next 5 years. A huge assistant pool akin to what Schiano got at Rutgers. But the BoT will no approve anything more than probably 2 million a year per coach and like 500k for assistants.
