I can think of from 4.2 to 4.9 million reasons.

That was a Gregg Marshall price tag. Not a Michael White or Prohm price tag. I'm guessing if they go with someone like those coaches, the price will be 1.5 - 2.0 mil. They pay more to make it feel like they got a big name coach.

Do they want to see Tuscaloosa burned down?

What he said. Since Haase makes $1 million Alabama has to make at least $1.5 million since they are the better basketball school.

Quote:How long will Alabama go without a new head coach? Gregg Marshall and Richard Pitino essentially both said “thanks, but no thanks.” The search for the new Tide coach reminds me of Oregon’s search four years ago. It took 39 days before the Ducks hired Dana Altman. I’d say that worked out. The best option for Bama may be right up the road with UAB’s Jerod Haase.

Well, sounds like he is a guy without a clue about the state of Alabama.

I'm surprised that haven't attempted to get Steve Kerr of the Golden State Warriors. Just kidding.

I too am tickled UAT is being turned down by coaches.

If they wanted Haase, they would come calling. They enjoy stepping on UAB. However, they don't want Haase from little UAB. Well, unless they are looking to close down UAB's basketball program too. After all, all that really matters is getting a good education and job.

They upped the ante of the price tag for their coach without even knowing it by giving Haase a good raise.

They could have hired Prohm for $1 million and nobody would have thought twice about it.

It is getting close to the point though where there isn't anyone out there who warrants a $1 million salary for them.

I think you underestimate much SEC coaches make. No way they were going to cut the salary they were paying Grant in half.

John Calipari KY $6.5 mil
Billy Donovan FL $4.4 mil
Bruce Pearl AU $2.7 mil
Frank Martin USC $2.1 mil
Anthony Grant (fired) UA $1.9 mil
Andy Kennedy Miss $1.8 mil
Mark Fox UGA $1.6 mil
Donnie Tyndall (fired) UT $1.6 mil
Mike Anderson Ark $1.5 mil
Kim Anderson Missouri $1.2 mil
Johnny Jones LSU $1.1 mil
Billy Kennedy Tx A&M $1.0 mil
Rick Ray (fired) MSU $250,000 (wow. Lowballed)
Kevin Stallings Vandy - unavailable.

Howland is reportedly getting 2.05 million at Miss St.

Barnes is reportedly getting 2.25 million at Tennessee.

Looking at that, one would guess that Alabama really would like to pay a coach $3 million to go there to make it appear that the coach is better than Pearl.
