this is the way big time college athletics and coaching salary / retention works these days - and if UH wants to run with the big dogs this ‘gamble’ is mandatory like it or not… and the reality is - it is a gamble as to whether we will get the return on investment - the money the power 5 schools have thrown at coaches that end up average and below average in the past decade is crazy – but i don’t see it stopping.

This is important for recruiting and for staff retention.

Note that if Dana bolts for another job he owes UH a ton of $money.

Dana’s recruiting has already greatly improved. And he has a 4 Star USC transfer visiting soon. Overall Dana has improved our roster immensely over what Applewhite left him in 2019.

Very important…Dana says this is his “Dream Job” and that he wants to end his career at UH. After Briles, Sumlin, and Herman that should be music to everyone’s ears.

This will help in recruiting because it is something tangible to show recruits that there will be coaching stability for the duration of their eligibility. With those buyouts, he isn’t going anywhere. This bodes well for sustainability of a high level program.

For those who think this is too much to pay him, just remember we are going into the B12 and P5 salaries are higher than G5 salaries. If you want a decent coach, you have to pay decent salaries in line with his peers. This contract would have made CDH the 5th highest paid HC in the B12 last year. It is not out of line at all, it is actually a good deal for UH.

I completely agree. Double edge sword. But hopefully it’s for the better.

If they think its worth it I’m game. Its not my money in the objective sense. Just my time. And last year it was time well spent for the most part.

He kept WVU winning with terrible recruiting grounds. He’ll be fine here

He’s heading towards Nick Saban type money. Hope he turns into our Nick Saban

He deserved the extension after last year. The pay increases are relatively modest. He needs to keep producing consistently though.

They ought to remake the movie Twins, and have CDH and Saban star in it. It’s like looking in a mirror.

A “decent” $4.2M.
