100%. If I'm Trev Alberts, I'm taking that new B1G TV money and swinging for the fences. Why not? I'm putting a package together that's competitive with the elite programs in the country and targeting Dave Aranda and Luke Fickell.

Aranda signed an extension this offseason and since Baylor is a private school, it's unclear what he's making now. It's believed he had been getting $4 million.

Fickell is making $5 million with an assistant salary pool of $5.2 million.

Trev can make an offer one of these guys can't say no to IMPO. Throw out 8 years and $75 million with an assistant coach pool of $7 million.
No new coach under TA would get 8 years.

No new coach under TA would get 8 years.

Why? The going rate is typically 6-7 years for new hires. If it's for a guy like Aranda or Fickell, I think it's worth sweetening the offer.

If he's gonna go after a guy a tier lower, perhaps a guy like Jeff Hafley, Bill O'Brien, Dave Clawson or Dave Doeren, then I could see 6 years.

But for the sake of derailing the thread any further, I'll stop talking about possible candidates.

My apologies RR.

Clearly people forget these are kids. You can be disappointed they don't pick your school of choice, but attacks of any sorts are just asinine.
