    If $2.4 million a year is just a "few bucks" to him, then by all means have at it.

    I will say though that I'll laugh like a hyena if FIU gets hit with sanctions on his watch.

    Or, maybe, his desire to coach outweighs a few bucks.

    He'd get more experience for less work and comparable money (with a school of FIU's size) to stay in the NFL as a "special assistant" than go coach at a mid-major when the NCAA already has their eye on him. Not to mention the $2.4 million annually that Orange County Remedial College is forking over to him so long as he doesn't have "coach" in his title.

    That's why he'd have to be crazy to leave the nfl for that gig. Hence why I draw the conclusion that his gravy train is drying up if he's actually considering that job.

    Just out of curiosity, what makes you think that?

    HA. So I guess the NFL gravy train dried up?

    Wow, that's good news for UNC. Unless he takes the role as a "football consultant" again to avoid being called a "Coach".

    Sorry guys and gals. I tried to link to the story on CBSsports.com but it didn't attach.

    UNC could save some money if he takes the coaching job, right?
