In today's college football landscape colleges with money.....

are throwing it out there like it's sand. ECU had to get ahead and shore up Houston's ability to recruit well and give him some security so we could keep things moving in a positive direction.

With that said, I agree 100% on the buyout. It is too cheap compared to what we would have to pay him if he were fired. There needs to be somewhat of a mutual balance there. I hope they gave Blake Harrell some additional security and had a discussion about his future. I also hope the AD is putting together a spread sheet of young and rising coaching talent and people that would make good replacements. If Houston were to go 11-1 next year and win a bowl to go 12-1 he will get offers from someone that will far exceed what ECU can pay. It's just the way it is now and has been for longer than we admit. Remember Bill Lewis. Skip didn't even have those really impressive records and got a much larger offer.
