    I did some googling but didn't find anything but random message boards talking about the $8 million buyout clause that allegedly got written into muchamp's contract. I'm sure there must be an actual story somewhere confirming this, given how much you guys love to talk about it. Can somebody provide proof? Secund2nun, you mention this in pretty much every other post. Surely you can back it up.

    Generally these buyouts are tempered down by whatever new job the person gets...but Will gets it all regardless. In other words in many cases a new job at 4 mil total would cut Floridas by that amount.
    Not in Wils case however.

    He had it in the original contract? Why would we give that to a first time head coach?

    Thanks GatorSean and Brodeur. Hadn't seen it anywhere but message boards and couldn't find it in print.

    Yes, he is the best AD. No, he is not perfect.

    Which leads me to another question. Can Foley re-structure Will's contract after this season? If not, he's looking at a 4mil buyout after next season, if we're still in "the coach must be fired" mode.

    Several articles after last season state they exercised the option AND added a year to the contract, so that it runs through the 2017 season. That's 4 more years, 8 million at this point.
