Is this information from the Oklahoma 247 editor correct?
"Auburn has agreed to play Coach Golloway $650,000 dollars a year with a guaranteed five year contract, that rolls over in year four to another five years at the same salary which totals out to $6.5 million dollars over the life of the contract with 1.5 million dollar buyout if Coach Golloway decides to leave before the life of the contract is up."
I know the 650K is correct but is it guaranteed fully for 5 the years and does it have a built in rollover for another 5 years?
Also, does Auburn owe Oklahoma any buyout to hire Golloway?
I'm checking but can't guarantee when I receive an answer.

So we are going to pay too much to get a good coach or too little and not get a good coach. Pick one. He is a fantastic coach with a great record to prove that. He's proved he can his teams to be able to compete at the highest level. You either pay him or you don't get him at all.
Who is complaining? A guaranteed contract (no buyout) and a built in rollover after the 4th year taking it to 10 years would be unusual for an Auburn contract. This is an Oklahoma guy reporting it so I am just wondering if the information is accurate or not.
I've seen others on here and different boards complain about it.
I'm with you. You gotta pony up if you wanna ride with the big boy$.
