$1.2 million base annually through 2028.

OC and DC both signed 2-year deals. Both are making $225k and increase to $325k/year next year for the OC.

Basically, took some $ that was going to BC and dispersed to the staff. Good move, imo.

I wouldn’t put much thought into where we stack up against the rest of the AAC, Dilfer isn’t a proven head coach to demand our best offer yet. Pretty good to get 1.3 as a new coach

...and Dilfer is already personally wealthy so he can elect to pour those resources into a larger staff.

I suspect that's exactly what happened. He hired a lot of people.

+1. Staff seems like it might be 3x the size of the last one.

So, this means we could not find anyone with college coaching experience to come to UAB for $1.2 million.

No I don’t think that is so.

No. They could have hired a retread or given an assistant his shot.

Ingram thought way outside the box. He swung for the fences. He knows that if Dilfer crashes and burns that he'll look like an idiot, too.

Everything I'm seeing from this guy looks right. We're recruiting players as good or better than we ever had. A quarter to a third of the HS guys we're offering now are 4 stars, guys who in the past we might or might not have made even a token run at recruiting. We may miss on all of them, but I think he's going to sign some. We already have more four star recruits than we have ever had before.

The game calling, offensive and defensive philosophy sounds good in chat on a podcast, but we have yet to see it work on the field. Doubt is more than reasonable at this point. I still like what I'm seeing and hearing.

We'll see.

I think there were proven coaches willing to come but their price wasn't in our range.

Define proven I guess. I don’t believe we couldn’t hire a coach with experience at that price. I just think Ingram wanted to swing for the fences.

Tom Herman got 1.2 million from FAU.

Maybe schools are going to wise up and not get into bidding wars
