I mean, the contract length was Rhule's idea, not Tepper's. He bought into whatever Rhule was selling. That's why Tepper hasn't fired him yet. He was promised something with an understanding. That's what we're going through. Do I think Rhule will come through with the promise? Nope.
I’ve said this on here before and somebody always comes out with some article from 10 years ago saying this was Rhule’s goal.
I don’t think so. It was rumored he was making 4-5 million at Baylor. He’s making 7-8 million now. Who wouldn’t take a job for that kind of money? I really think he’s soaking up what money he can while he’s in the NFL if he wins, he wins, if he don’t he don’t. I think he’s waiting for an opening with the right school to come up and if Tepper fires him next season he will have his pick of a number of colleges so he won’t be jobless.
Also the contract isn’t as tight as everyone makes it out. The way I understand it, it’s 30 mil guaranteed. His salary counts towards that guaranteed. So if he makes 7.5. Per year he’s already at 15 and will be at 22.5 after year 3.
