I believe you’re correct. As a side note, UT basically just soaked themselves in gasoline and handed the NCAA a book of matches. Not very wise. Nor does it bode well for trying to get other coaches hired.Yes the chancellor said no buyout. However Pruitt has a lawyer and I suspect he fights it unless the evidence against him is overwhelming. As much as i am half his tenure is over, I do feel like he was a fall guy so to speak. They wanted him gone and made sure they did what they could to fire with cause.
“If you don’t win enough games, we will internally investigate the program to find violations and make sure you’re fired, with cause, so we don’t have to pay your buyout. Deal?”
