07:21 AM ET 11.27 | Speculation about a coach's job safety brings a review of his contract. In the case of Bo Pelini, the Husker head coach in mid-December of last year received a "positive performance evaluation" that extended his contract a year to Feb. 28, 2018. The extension was given by outgoing athletic director Tom Osborne on Dec. 13 of last year based off the evaluation and "with the approval of the Chancellor," Harvey Perlman. That information, and updated data of assistants' contracts, was obtained this week from the athletic department at the Journal Star's request. Such one-year extensions are something of an annual procedure within the coaching profession. ... If Pelini were fired, the university would be on the hook for $7.65 million to him minus any salary guaranteed at his new employment.

$7.65 mil from UN for not working or x from another employer + $7.65 mil -x from UN for working.

Other than retirement, I don't think I've ever been offered money not to work.

Is this like farmers being offered money NOT to plan some of their fields in certain years?

College coaches are grossly overpaid and they're treated like they're more important than the team. It's the players who spill blood for the program not the coaches.

SCREW COACHING SALARIES!

So Nebraska has a bad HC....is $7.65 mil going to be an issue to move him out? Don't think so.

The more telling ones are the "conversations" taking place in Mrs Pelini's basement where the bros busted out the dime bag.

Can you imagine if Bro Pelini had been the HC of the Canes when Sugar Daddy Shapiro was in business, spreading the snow like it was Minnesota in January?

Do you realize how easy it is to recruit against Nebraska with Pelini there? Brother a crack head and fired at FAU. Pelini hates the Nebraska fan base of dirt farmers. recruits don't want to lay for a hated coach.

wow. a lot of speculation there.
