It turns out you can put a price on desperation.
Charlie Weis was making $765K in 2011 and had a three-year deal worth $2.6M. If Roper's deal exceeds that, wow.—

And perhaps we need to give Agent Muschamp some credit here.
Muschamp and Gators receivers coach Joker Phillips are familiar with Roper’s credentials. Muschamp faced Roper’s Ole Miss offense when he was defensive coordinator at LSU and Auburn, and Phillips was Kentucky’s offensive coordinator in 2005 when Roper was the Wildcats’ quarterbacks coach.
Pease coached at Kentucky, too. Boom’s obviously got a Wildcat fetish. Maybe he’s got a secret plan to turn Florida into a basketball school.
