1 awkward Month

The buyout doesnt come down till January 1st

even if we wanted to fire him we have to pretend like we dont for a full month, and let him do recruting stuff


whats the buyout after jan 1st?

19mil to 14 mil

Whens the transfer portal open?

A new coach needs to hit the portal well. Or retain the existing talent

If it doesn’t happened now I don’t see it happening. The portal is about to open. No way they wait a month just to get a new coach

Not how it works. We can hire someone tomorrow and keep Dana on the payroll, then fire him Jan 1


Where is anyone seeing the buyout coming down on Jan. 1. in his contract?

I haven’t seen it.

Unless his contract considers that termination. My guess is it does.

I think they’d negotiate it. He could probably take the 14 million and walk, if he knows it’s coming.

Our AD can negotiate this.

An agreement that the effective date is January 01 with Dana moving on next month.

Why would you put that in the contract?

December 4, 2023.

Tell him privately you are about to fire him and start meeting with coach candidates.

Just be up front with him.

Maybe he’d wave the month+ fee because he knows it’s fair.

If he resists…transfer him to the copy room for a month do he’s still technically "on the payroll "


I think it’s down to about 11 million January 1 2024.

So we’d save only 3 million not letting him go sooner,

There has to be a workaround. Anyone putting that contract together should realize waiting that long to fire a coach, before hiring a new one, loses tons of valuable time.

negative, I want him cleaning the toilets


We can not afford to wait a month.


duarte, released his contract information when he got the extension. its on his twitter somewhere

And that’s nothing against toilets.


It doesn’t matter now or Jan 1. It’s no difference
