I thought his contact went through the end of this season, but really it's through 2022. I thought for some reason his contact expired this season. In that case, I think giving him the extension right now is unnecessary. I get recruiting and blah blah, but this could have waited until the off-season. If we lose out and finish 6-5, we'll all look like fools for doing this.

I thought that as well. I have to dig up where I read that this was coach P last season.

Apparently, SB added a couple more years to the existing contract he had that was extended 1 year from 2017 to 2018 without making it public...

It would have been better to wait until the season officially ended . As posted earlier if we lose out and go 6-5 it looks messy .

for all we know he was getting an offer away and we acted quickly... it's just guesswork at this point.
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

I find it very interesting how his contract was extended to 1 year from 2017 to 2018. Read what I posted earlier. Now all the reports are saying his contract was for 2020 . Something smells fishy. But you know what!! I really dont care if Daffy Duck is SB HC, just win games and get to the playoffs every year is my goal. Goof for coach P.

in the world of college sports, nothing should surprise anyone anymore.  what with the expenditures and the need to win now.

the point was- we arent working with a whole lot of facts here.

The team is playing well and we lost by only 3 to the #2 team in the country. It's not that crazy of a suggestion. I do somewhat question it though, because Coach P is already getting low FBS money from us, so few FCS programs could really poach him from us as the ones who have the means probably already have solid coaches. If he actually had legit FBS offers to move up, they'd pay more than we could and it'd be a near no-brainer for him to take it. I honestly doubt it's he had an offer, but ya never know. The fact that he got ninja extended two years without anybody knowing is strange enough already.

Whether we go 8-3 or 6-5 we are going to keep Priore anyway. Priore is doing well and has us competing in the CAA at a high level. He provides the stability the program needs in the next few years as we continue to build facilities to support the program.

Agreed. He helped build our enhanced reputation (athletics and academics) as reflected in various national rankings. FWIW he is just a good quarterback away from an excellent season...but the program he built is having another very good season.
