Recruits don't care at all about a coach's contract. It doesn't affect recruiting. If you have 4-5 years left on your contract and you end up with 6 losses you are gonna be on the hot seat anyways so that will affect recruiting. Also no matter how many years are left on contract everyone knows you can get fired way before the contract ends as we saw with Weis and ND. The only one who would benefit from this would be WM who would earn more money for being fired. It would be like basically handing him free bonus money for no reason. If anything, if Foley extended Muschamp after this terrible season gatornation including bull gators would riot.
