I just talked to a friend in the athletic department at CMU, who thought Butch was going to stay. They offered him something around $400k and $200k in potential bonuses, which is pretty good for CMU.

If this is true, as a fan I don't like it, but he deserves it.

It was going to happen sooner or later either this year or next. Butch did a good job keeping together Kelly's program at Central for the last 3 years and probably saw things were gonna be different next year.

His stock is definitely as high as it ever will be at CMU and this is a good move on his part as much as I hate to say it. Should be interesting to see how he does at Cincy. I don't think he'll go farther up after this move, but maybe there'll be a program willing to take a chance on him in a couple years...
