Would he actually be a good get?  I know nothing about him.

After what he did at CU I'm good with it. I'd rather have Venzy but if not he's a good hire.

Leavitt:Snyder as Roy:Dean

I'm kind of surprised Oregon hired him given his age, Snyder's age, and this clause in the contract.

This is a significant and excellent way of looking at this, Fan.  That really IS a head scratcher on the part of Oregon.   OK, I changed my mind. Tthis makes me think the likelihood of Leavitt is low.

Oregon's new offensive-minded coaching staff needs an infusion of defensive knowledge. The thinking might be that $1.5 million/year isn't too steep a price for that if he's out of there in a year or two but lets the new staff get established.  :dunno:

It's Phil's money - there is no price too steep

Fair enough, and the Phil Knight point by Skipper is good as well.

*1.15 million

No current Pac-12 assistants make over $1 million per year.

"However, Leavitt does have a very specific loophole in his buyout clause: He won't be required to pay anything "should he voluntarily terminate this agreement to become the head football coach at Kansas State University."

I can understand Leavitt not being some fans' first choice but in no way would that be a bad choice

Leavitt would be good in the sense that he could be the guy after the guy and we probably wouldn't be complete garbage.

I think Leavitt could pretty regularly have us at 7-9 wins. I would take anyone that could continue winning here not named Snyder. Just to shake the stigma that only a freak like Snyder can win here.

I believe Leavitt could assemble a good staff, would take.

This.  Leavitt has demonstrated ability to field great defenses, and he has solid Florida recruiting ties.  If he came and hired a good OC, a Leavitt hire, in my books, would be a home run.  The question is, would Currie hire someone that lied to an investigator like 10 years ago (reason for being dismissed from USF).

Leavitt seems to have had conversations with someone about KSU but who knows if that person is Snyder or Currie.  If it was Snyder, he just put pressure on Currie to either hire him or find someone better.  Leavitt has a lot of experience as a HC which seems to be a high priority on past Currie lists.  That said, I don't think pressuring Currie is a winning formula.  Between his stubbornness on Leti Romero and apparent value on "getting along" with the coaches, that would be a tough way to start a relationship.

On the plus side, it feels pretty big time for any coach to put an out in a contract that is specific to K-State.

Didn't Currie allegedly reject Bill hiring him as an assistant a few years back?

Leavitt is a less successful version of oscar Weber who grabbed a player by the throat and slapped him during halftime of a game.

But yeah, not bad! :flush:

I don't want to defend Currie by any means, but I'm curious how and if he will change now that we have a new Prez.  Seeing how Schultz has responded to situations at Washington St. leads me to believe that he may have had influence on how Currie responded to circumstances we are all familiar with.  I hope Myers wants to win at any/all costs.

Snyder would be thrilled to have a guy who would keep Sean & all his geriatric buds on staff. Pretty solid situation for Leavitt to walk into, too.

When he became a head coach, he inherited a program from a future hall of famer stacked with talent?

I guess I missed that.

But yeah, I don't like the slapping a player thing.
