As I was reading the SL Tribune's UofU Sports correspondent Lya Wodraska's latest post, something occurred to me based on the following statement in her article.
According to the Los Angeles Times, if Chow quits he receives none of his salary. If he is fired, he gets it all, minus the amount another job would pay him...Chow was given a two-year contract worth $1 million in July.
So to me, this seems like if Chow is fired...which is what all signs are pointing to...he could sign on with Utah for a marginal amount for 2 years, and in essence still make what he is used to getting paid. I think UCLA recognizes this, and while Neuheisel wants to bring in his own guy, they don't want to fire Chow and foot the bill of paying for him over the next 2 years while he coaches at Utah.
Is anyone else coming to this conclusion?
