We are talking about 65 million dollars..... Area51Trojan Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 3,375 Likes Received: 8,760 Nov 2, 2019 #1 To replace Helton. There is his buyout, thanks Swann you worthless AD. Then we have to lure Urban, he was making about 8.3M at Ohio State plus his staff was well-paid. The only thing that we have an advantage of right now is if we fire Helton immediately and make our play before other schools start firing their coaches. I know ND would love to be rid of Kelly. So step one has to be to relieving Helton and lining up the money. The ROI could be almost immediately, I have read that 25k more tickets equals 2 million more a game of net revenue not counting ancillary income. We have cheeped out, been lazy and frankly incompetent in our AD & coaching hires. We've a new President and new AD. The President knows how much a good coach matters to the flagship sport ( UNC and basketball) and our new AD knows the capabilities of Urban. There is just too much smoke and frankly energy demanding a big time hire....you can't give us a up and coming coach at this point. That would have been last year...not now. We have a flood right now and the only thing that will plug is going to cost big money. jjg4sc, fssca51, uscjrl98 and 6 others like this.
