Clark's agent wanted five. Mackin said three or nothing.

Faster than the wind and I don't blame him. Unless he is paid off I hope he tells all he knows.

Clark strikes me as his own man. If this goes down he'll likely burn the house down on his way out. He knows his market value.

Unfortunately a coach's "market value" is affected by his willingness to the nasty secrets of his former employers under raps. Future employers want to be assured that they are not going to be dragged unwillingly into media spotlight if their relationship with their new coach they are about to hire someday goes sour. Coaches seeking new employment don't want to screw up their futures to get even with their former program. That and severance agreements, which in some cases contain "hush money" non non-disclosure agreements keep most coaches from spilling beans later. Expect Clark to say nothing if he leaves UAB because of this mess.

To a certain degree I agree. But this is an extraordinary circumstance almost unprecedented. I'm sure he feels he's been publicly lied to and he's got a reputation as a straight shooter. I'm sure any hush money would gladly reimbursed by boosters of his new employer just so he could lower the boom on those in power. It's a funny world that way

RE: What do we know about Bill Carr and the Study?
Some of you guys are acting like Clark has developed a lifelong allegiance to UAB. Quit looking through your green and gold glasses. The guy has been here for less than a year, and he had no connection to UAB heretofore. It's a job. He left his alma mater after just one season. He will be more than happy to strike while the iron is hot again and move on to a bigger paycheck, and there's nothing wrong with that, BTW.

As well he should, under the circumstances.
