I really need this job, Mr. Saban.

Booch is obligated under the terms of his Tennessee contract to seek new employment.

Tennessee owed Jones an $8.26 million buyout when it fired him, due in monthly installments throughout the duration of his contract, which was set to expire on Feb. 28, 2021. His contract requires him to try to find a new job to mitigate the buyout.

The analyst role likely wouldn’t mitigate Tennessee’s damages much – the AP reported in 2017 that analysts usually make about $45,000 annually – but it would fulfill Jones’ contractual duty, and he can continue to rake in that buyout money.

Who knew busy work could be so lucrative?

    A $45,000 a year job secures 8.26 million. I award Jones 5 champion of life points and also award 1 point to Saban for rubbing UT’s nose in it.

      Yes Sir. That’s how it is done! If I were Booch I’d drive to Knoxville on payday and make the bastards hand me the check eyeball to eyeball, Sporting a “Roll Tide” t-shirt and one of those hats Bear Bryant wore. But I can be petty and vindictive according to Mrs. Cowdog. I’m sure Booch is a much classier guy, he’ll just send the Great Pumpkin a confirmation email when the direct deposit hits.

      Publix usually does not like their employees to be surly and ill tempered when dealing with the public hence Booch was not a candidate
