What should (now) seated Virginia Tech Athletic Director do about coach James Johnson, specifically?
One could make the argument that he (Bab’s) should terminate coach J’s tenure; and pronto.
Or should he (Whit) stand pat and do nothing?
Let this contractual trifecta of fiscal hurt play itself out, first. Then wipe the burnt-orange and Chicago-maroon hooping sheet clean? Keep reading, and you will see what I mean…
Well, what can he afford to do may be the more salient conversation and that’s the bottom line! Don’t believe me? Check it out… (see the pun?)….
Seth Greenberg 2014-2015 Virginia Tech head coaching salary=$300,000.oo
James Johnson 2014-2015 Virginia Tech head coaching salary=$680,000.oo
According to my McBryde Hall Calc’ and stats: that amounts to =$980,000.oo
Or right at a million dollars to pay two Virgina Tech men’s basketball (former) head coaches NOT to coach.
Now mix in a third and coach; and we all hope it to be a sexxy or splashy hire, so let’s just use the even number of at least another cool million dollars.
Now riddle me this…………what kind of A.D. is actually gonna pay three different head coaches $2,000,000.oo (or better) to only have one of them coach???
On the other hand, can Babcock afford not to???
Because after all, when you hit rock bottom, is it actually a salient idea to start digging?
Why not rip the band-aid or yank the tooth?
Get it over with.
Though that is a very expensive move; is it not? And either way; A.D. W.Babcock sure inherited -though no fault of his own- a pickle of an opening salvo of a major league general manager decision.
So what would you do???
Jim Weaver=2 Whit Babcock=???
