Wednesday, Cal basketball coach Cuonzo Martin resigned to take the same position at Missouri. Martin reportedly received a 7-year, $21 million contract from the Tigers.
That is chump change compared to the reported offer Illinois is thinking about extending to current Virginia coach Tony Bennett. $4.8 million...PER SEASON?!
Have we reached a point where things are simply out of control?
Here’s what I know, Illinois is talking about offering $4.8m/yr to Tony Bennett, they aren’t talking about offering half that for Cuonzo— Sam Snelling (@SamTSnelling) March 15, 2017
