    Butch Jones' buyout is $12M if it occurs before March 1st, 2016. If afterward, it's $10M.

    If we fire him after March 1st, 2017, it's still $8M.

    $2M per year for every contract year remaining.

    This will be the primary reason why Hart is shown the door. And should be.

    We would still be stuck with Jimmy Cheek's slimey hands on the process.

    So Tenny, this seems to say that economically, we won't make a change?

    Again, I am in the wrong business.

    Good God that contract is ludicrous and criminal fiduciary negligence.

    I believe there was a thread on this site that detailed the extension / buyout changes. Might be able to search it out.

    I wonder if anyone has ever measured the worst coaching investments of all time, as measured in dollars paid out per win delivered.

    This should effectively end any Butch being fired this year discussions.

    This is the most depressing thread possibly ever....

    The buyout is 4 million, per his contract

    Edit: someone posted it just above me

    That appears to be dated 2013, is it pre-extension? If so, are Tenny's figures more up to date? I'm on an iPhone so the document posted in the link above is hard to read as it won't stretch...

    I just saw that in the last link... We're shackled to this turd for several more years....

    awebb , thanks for the better link... Depressing as it is to read it's better to have an honest assessment of where we stand....

    We hang onto Butch much longer and nothing short of Gruden and the national attention he would command will bring the program back.

    Why exactly does the contract run from March to March? Was he not hired in December? Is that standard practice?

    So contract year would be 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019. We are already paying him for 2015, so would this not be an $8M buyout if fired on February 29th 2016? I haven't had time to review the entire document.
