"Per Jon Wilner, the total cost of firing Jeff Tedford, current Cal football coach, would come to somewhere around $10 million. That is a lot of money, particularly for a coach whose overall record over the last three years is just over .500, and an especially large sum for a program still footing the bill for recent renovations to Memorial Stadium.
So to review: Jeff Tedford gets to live in houses like this, coach his team into shape while the university realizes how painful it would be to fire him, and then pull this out and win seven or eight games while reminding everyone that yes, even with the frustrations of the present, he remains the all-time winningest coach in Bears history."
That buyout figure seems a little off. FiatSlug, where are you?
