All UK assistants are on contract until June 30, 2014 and are due full salary until then or until they get another job or collect unemployment benefits. I think all are probably looking - it doesn't look good in the long run to sit around and collect a paycheck from your previous employer just because you can - but they can afford hold out and not take the first job offered.
Smith will probably end up back in the high school ranks or maybe a small college HC or DC job. Summers, Cassity, Sanders, and Nord all have solid D-1 credentials. I think age will start to work against them more than the failure of the Joker regime at UK.
