I don’t know how I missed this when it was announced, but check out the sweet deal Mark Stoops has with Kentucky:
In addition to the two-year extension, the amendment adds an automatic extension opportunity to the contract. If the football team wins at least seven games but no more than nine games in a season, the term of the agreement will extend one year. If the football team wins at least 10 games, the term of the agreement will extend two years. For each additional automatic extension year, the total guaranteed compensation will increase by $250,000 from the immediately preceding year.
Now there’s a man who doesn’t want a ninth conference game on the schedule.

Surely there must be a cap on that just to account for the potential buy out ramifications.
Not wanting a 9th conference game? Sure, why fall in line with what is good for your season ticket holders who, you know, are the reason they pay you anything above a couple hundred grand? Man up coaches, it is the least you can do for $10+MM dollars in contract value. TV isn’t really crazy about your game with Eastern Kentucky either. Risk/reward.
