Once college football’s highest paid offensive coordinator, Jim Chaney is out of a job. But not out of a paycheck, ’cause Tennessee.
Heupel informed Chaney and Weinke on Friday morning that he would not be keeping them on staff, meaning Chaney is owed $1.7 million on the remaining portion of his contract and Weinke $450,000. Both of those figures could be mitigated if either coach takes another job.
And when I say ’cause Tennessee, I mean ’cause Tennessee.
In addition to being on the hook for the full $900,000 that Steele is owed if he isn’t retained, Tennessee owes UCF the $2.5 million buyout to get White out of his contract and owes UCF the $3.59 million buyout to get Heupel out of his contract. Tennessee is paying the Parker Executive Search Firm $120,000 for assisting with the AD search and another $120,000 for assisting with the head-coaching search.
Why do I have a feeling they’ll be doing the same shit four or five years down the road? ‘Cause Tennessee.
