Most ADs are negotiating against themselves - especially when it’s extensions. But this is an all time laugher.
I’d argue that it would be better for a mid major to hand out a deal with a clause like that. Mizzou should be expecting their coach to take their team to the NCAA 3 out of 4 years minimum - especially at that price point for Martin. That is a low expectations deal that should realistically turn into a lifetime contract for Cuonzo or a really expensive buyout. A team that has a handful of tournaments in their history would be okay to hand that out, as the coach would probably leave for greener pastures and/or be exceeding expectations for that program.
Even if you fire the AD, who wants a job where your 1B high profile program has a coach locked in like that?
This is great.
