UAB announces new long-term contract for Men’s Basketball Coach Jerod Haase

Good for Coach Haase and necessary, but also a thinly-veiled effort to placate UAB fans and (re)start a division within the ranks...

Watts told Haase to work on a "Long-term plan" for basketball. He's killing basketball next.

Haase looks like a POW in this video.

And, Watts may be drunk.

Congrats to Haase. Watts and his BoT buddies still must go.

So the contract is for a salary of 1 mil a year or is that with incentives and things tied in? What's his base salary.

Still this is a shocking amount to offer him IMO. We only offered Anderson in the neighborhood of 600-650 when he left for Mizzou, correct?

And all this "committed spending" for upgrades, travel, etc., it seems like a thinly veiled disguise to placate angry fans. While I'm happy about all this, it also makes me nervous that they are digging in and football will not come back no matter what...

I am happy for Coach Hass and to secure his continued presence at UAB. I hope to heck the new contract contains a sizable buy out clause.

Nope Haas does not look comfortable in that picture, probably because if I were him, I wouldn't want Watts commenting on my integrity.

I hope that this was one of Watts' last official acts as UAB's President.

Please get this contract signed, sealed, and delivered formally ASAP so when Watts gets his azz booted the next administration can't nix the contract. I really hope it has a big buy out as well.. This is a very strong commitment to Haase though. Bigger than anything we did for Anderson or Davis.

He made $625k this year including the incentives he earned by winning C*USA and making it to the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament.

Alabama is about to spend $3-4 million, probably for a coach of Haase's caliber, so yeah, it's time for UAB to step up into seven digits.

Well deserved for Haase.

Definitely have to know this is political from the Watts and BOT camp. Also I'm sure they would love for it to create a division in the fan base.

I will remind folks that we are all Blazers. Whether you became a UAB fan for one sport or another it doesn't matter. There's no reason we can't be successful in BOTH football and basketball.

I'm glad for Haase and glad for basketball but this in NO way minimizes my anger or my desire to bring football back.
