    Re: Arky Sounds Serious About Hiring a Coach - Agree on 6 million/year Salary

    I wouldn't be shocked that Arky is willing to pay a salary that high. A few weeks ago I heard the growth of the athletic dept. revenue during Petrino's tenure, and it was in the tens of millions.

    HOWEVER, if the powers there said "OK, we can go up to $6MM for the right coach", then it is utter stupidity to let this news get out. Now, the first candidate they offer, whether he's WORTH $6MM or not, is going to demand that salary. All negotiating power is gone. It's hard to imagine that anyone in charge of that kind of budget would be so clueless.

    They should have a surplus of money since they got out of paying Petrino's salary, bonus and etc
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.

    Yes he does have a "show cause" earmark in the NCAA file, so he is not going anywhere until some time passes and he gets that lifted.
    Speaking of Gundy, I think he would be a good fit with the hogs. He has the mentality of airing it out, which seems to be the focus of Arkansas. But, $6 million might be a little steep.

    Not only that, but if they do hire him, whatever penalties are imposed on him are automatically cloned tot he school. IOW, hiring Tresell means you are immediately in hot water with the NCAA...

    Yea I remember them saying how it was the wrong move and that he was the worst coach of all time. Gotta love the media these days.
