Whose seat do you think is hotter? Dino or JW?

Is there any pressure on JW for the football programs direction and the potential next hoops coach or is his seat as cool as the other side of the pillow?

Does Dinos contract guarantee him another year and the fact he made a bowl this season?

If your in charge of the future of both gentlemen what would you do?

Last time I checked, Syracuse was in the "higher education" business, not the "football factory" business.

Unless JW starts dating his babysitter, he's not going anywhere.
Correct. JW is doing a lot of good for the overall athletics department. I know everyone focuses on football and basketball but he takes a full athlete / program perspective.

Congrats to the other futbol program by the way. ACC championship for men’s soccer is a great accomplishment.

The Athletics Department is having a great fall season especially with the Mens Soccer Team winning the ACC Championship today.

As for Babers he is not going anywhere with a $10 million buyout per Pete Thamel.

Wasn't that last season's number? If it is at $5M now wouldn't SU consider it?

Pretty sure as someone replied to this today already when it was brought up. There’s no way the buyout is 10mil at this point.

Thamel said after this season it’s $10mm. Dino’s contract goes through the ‘24 season

That would mean that he is getting $5M guaranteed per year. That is worse than the Carrier contract and unacceptable.

That being said we have to either move on or extend Dino after this year. Can't have the program in limbo. If we extend make sure it has a favorable buyout. That way you can fire him if he fails in 2023. If we move on, we need to find the money. Can't be a P5 program and not cover that amount.
