Especially in light of the previous story about Auburn’s finances, this sure strikes me as money well spent.
Georgia picked up the tab for the buyout in Jeremy Pruitt’s Florida State contract when it landed the national championship-winning defensive coordinator in January.
The school made a one-time lump sum payout of $81,499.59 to Pruitt to cover his buyout and taxes, according to Georgia executive associate athletic director Frank Crumley.
Both Pruitt and Bobo are under contract now. (Comparatively speaking in the context of what other SEC coordinators are making, Bobo’s deal looks like a steal for the school.)
