Kevin Steele Could Make Nearly $1 Million For 2 Weeks Of Work At Tennessee
John Reed-USA TODAY Sports
Just prior to getting fired by Tennessee, Jeremy Pruitt hired former Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele onto the Vols' staff. Steele signed a two-year contract worth $450,000 per year, that was fully guaranteed. Pruitt gets canned and Steele is Tennessee's interim coach for two weeks before they hire new head coach Josh Heupel. Now, Steele will most likely not be unretained by Heupel and will collect a $900,000 check on his way out the door. So, that all worked out well, no?... (The Spun/Barstool Sports)

So...Tennessee signs this guy to a contract then lets him go after 2 weeks. You would think someone in the know would have stopped this with what was to come with Pruitt.

I remember when Nick Saban signed his first contract for LSU in December of '99 for 1.2 million PER YEAR.

I guess it really shouldn't continue to surprise me how unprofessional many university AD's are now days, but it does. A large number are so fiscally incompetent it's basically malpractice. :-(

These AD's are very similar to the politicians in Washington DC with our tax money. Spend money recklessly and give it away as if there is no tomorrow!
