Besides official press releases? Nobody actually calles him by the full title, just like nobody calls Jim Hacket the Donald R. Sheppard Director of Athletics and nobody calls Pat Fitzgerald the Donald and Susan Jones Family Head Football Coach and nobody calls David Shaw the Bradford M. Freeman Director of Football.
The Athletic Department gets 10 million extra dollars they can use to pay Harbaugh or Mullen or whoever else they might be able to hire and in exchange the press releases get a little longer. In what world is this a bad thing?

It's amazing how mugh these folks have been demonized for having the audacity to agree to help pay the coach's salary.

A number of other teams have begun doing this as well, so I don't think the practice going anywhere anytime soon

Hopefully this is just the start of a lot of basketball to be played in this stadium (hint: Pistons)

|1 week 19 hours ago||Maybe That was the Deciding Factor||
But the fact that the talks got as far as they did shows that they're at least willing to consider the possibility. Maybe Cleveland wasn't the right fit but someone who has totally ruled out the idea of moving across the country doesn't enter into negotations with an out of town employer.
|1 week 20 hours ago||The fact that Harbaugh almost||
The fact that Harbaugh almost became Cleveland's coach last year suggests his wife's desire to stay in the Bay area doesn't completely rule out the possibility of them leaving.

Florida is in more fertile recruiting territory but Michigan has equally good (possibly better) facilities, can pay just as much, will get the same amount of national exposure and plays a consistently easier schedule.

His teams have underperformed for the last several years. If he wasn't fired then he probably won't be fired now.
|1 week 2 days ago||Urban Meyer makes $4.6||
Urban Meyer makes $4.6 million. Mark Dantonio makes $3.6 million. You don't have to pay $7 million in order to get a good coach.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agreed||
It's not realistic to think that any college is going to win a bidding war with an NFL team. The top coaches in college could probably all make more money in the NFL, they coach in college because they want to. If Jim, John, or anybody else wants to be a college coach they and their agents are both smart enough to know it will mean taking a bit of a paycut.
If the goal is making the most money possible, the NFL will always win.

Michigan would probably have to make some sort of path of least resistance argument. It's probably easier to make the playoff in a weak Big Ten where you've got a couple of tough games per year than in the loaded SEC.
|1 week 2 days ago||Interesting||
I think that type of contract is insane for anybody, but I'm curious about your response. Why would you commit more money to either Harbaugh than Stoops? Stoops has had more success over the course of his career than Jim and probably John as well (unless you count the Suber Bowl win as trumping college success, which is fair).

Not off the top of my head but this article from a few years ago says Ruters, Michigan State, and Texas Tech have all indicated they are willing to do so
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Endowment||
I really don't understand why people are so opposed to endowing the coach and AD positions. It is very common pracrtice in collegate athletics. Stanford, Northwestern, Harvard, and many others have endowed head coaching positions. This is a revenue source that has nothing to do with ticket prices/concessions/advertising, which I think we all should appreciate.
This is a serious question, I'm not just being contrarian.

Unless one has serious family ties I can't see why a recruit would go to Purdue if he's got offers from Michigan/OSU/Penn State, etc.

This seems similar to the leadership council that Hoke implemented on the team. I wonder how much influence he had over this.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
The Regents almost never vote this type of thing down. Usually by the time something gets onto the official public agenda everything has already been agreed to.

There's so much parity in the NFL that I don't think anyone can look at a 2015 schedule and make any sort of sound analysis.
|19 weeks 9 hours ago||I guess man||
Personally i've had a bug up my butt about this for a long time so maybe that's keeping me from having a ton of sympathy for the Regents. I mean just because they can operate with a total lack of transparency doesn't mean they should. If this gets more people aware of the issue and puts pressure on the legislature to change the law maybe its worth it.
|19 weeks 10 hours ago||Apparently the Regents are||
Apparently the Regents are allowed to make most decisions in "informal" sessions and simply hold rubber stamp "formal" public meetings because of a past state supreme court ruling. The loophole, therefore, is not necessarily writtend directly into the law and could be closed with a new supreme court ruling, no? I'll grant your vastly superior legal knowledge to my own but I've personally been annoyed by the rubber stamp nature of the regent meetings and would love to see them made to change their actions.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||I'm not so sure about that||
As other's have stated, Lebron's financial situation isn't going to change much regardless of where he plays. On the other hand, there's a pretty significant chance that Bosh will have to take a pay cut if he stays in Miami. He'll make more money in Houston and play on a team that arguably has just as good of a chance to win the title as Miami. Bosh doesn't really need to stay with the Heat to have a success in the future. It's not hard to see how going to the Rockets could be considered the better career move.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Bosh||
IMO whether or not Lebron goes back to Miami depends a lot on what Chris Bosh decides to do. Reports are that he has a max offer to join the Rockets and if he takes it Miami is left with a huge hole in their roster. It's easy to see Lebron thnking Cleveland is a better option in that scenario.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||If the Tigers can trade||
If the Tigers can trade Prince Fielder than the Pistons can trade Josh Smith. Believe in yourself Stan!
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Smith and Monroe can't play||
Smith and Monroe can't play together. That was the issue with the Pistons this year, so I don't know why a team would take both players. I really think it is going to have to be one or the other and I would much rather Smith be the one traded.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Pistons||
I really hope the Pistons don't give up Greg Monroe. I would much rather see a Josh Smith trade instead. Monroe and Drummond are much closer in age and will hit their prime at the same time. That's a much better long term situation for the team.
