    Default Kaler on Fleck contract: "It is a lot of money but we're getting a lot of coach."

    per STrib:

    The University of Minnesota Board of Regents officially signed off on the Row the Boat era, approving football coach P.J. Fleck's $18 million contract Friday afternoon with a 10-1 vote.

    "It is a lot of money," U President Eric Kaler said, "but we're getting a lot of coach."

    The contract will pay Fleck an average of $3.6 million per season — $18 million over the five years — slightly more than the Big Ten average of $3.52 million. Bonuses and incentives for victories, championships and academics could push the contract above $20 million in the coming seasons.

    The Gophers made a big jump in financial commitment from former coach Tracy Claeys' three-year, $4.5 million deal signed in November 2015.

    It's a little over the B1G average...

    Still "a lot" but that is relative.

    Interesting that Kalor is talking here.

    Is our AD live in town?

    Koyle likes to hide in the shadows. He's said that several times.

    It's a lot. We quadrupled Fleck's pay. Gotta think the U now has the highest paid FB and BB head coaches with the least amount of coaching experience of any major college conference.

    Regent Abdul M. Omari was the lone “no” vote, and he later declined to comment.

    Wonder what his reasoning is for his no vote? Couldn't even comment.

    Hypothetically, What would happen if the regents voted "no" on Fleck's contract? Would they need to work out a new deal of some type or would he be an unemployed coach?

    That's an interesting question. I figure Coyle had to be smart enough to get commitments it would pass before proceeding and that PJF's agent had to know that before his client agreed, but an interesting question.

    Note I only said positive things about Coyle here. No need for you know who to respond.

    Coyle obviously did a horrible job if it wasn't unanimous.....

    Would have likely have had to pay him his buyout if you remember the Tubby Smith assistant coach issues.

    Think that situation with Jimmy Williams, if that is the one you are referring to, was Maturi not signing off on it. Nothing to do with the regents if I recall correctly.

    I agree, I suspect Coyle and Kalor already knew the score one way or another with the regents.

    Also the regents also know voting it down would be potentially catastrophic.

    The one vote could just be a token "hey look we're doing our job, not everyone is just rubber stamping stuff..." kinda thing.
