I was told today that there is no "buy out" in the contract. Its a guaranteed contract. So we would need to pay the remainder of the contract, and the remainder of the assistant's contracts – then spend money on the new coach and staff.

If your eye is on Beard, we'd then have to pay his buyout in order to have him, in addition to what was listed above.

That's around $20-$23 million spent to have a new coach.

Would Texas spend that much on basketball?

 Beard isn’t leaving Lubbock for the dumpster fire in Austin anyways.

Give Shaka his money and send him on his way. Hire a high school coach, it couldn't get any worse.

I don't believe Texas will spend $23M to fire a basketball coach so we are stuck with Smart for at least a couple of more years.

I know these people that figure this stuff out are highly intelligent, but for a coach to be in this long and still owed $10.5M just seems like someone made a mistake somewhere. First thing these long term contracts need to be out the window. I’d rather pay a little more for a coach on a 3 year deal and then after the second year if the program is showing improvement you could add a year with a raise and keep doing like that. Perrine ran in there and extended and should have waited. Reminds me of when they were so excited after Texas beat Nebraska that they practically extended Mackovic in the locker room after the game and were ready to fire him the next year. Teams need to show marked improvement regardless of the sport before throwing more money at a coach. Just my opinion
