    I presume the new college he eventually ends up at (not Winthrop) will be on the hook to pay the million. He only makes $250k at Winthrop apparently.

    I'd like to think tax payer money doesn't cover any of this, the sports bring money in don't they?

    How many head football coaches are they currently paying? 3???

    Kellogg’s contract stipulates a 50 percent buyout of the two years remaining, meaning UMass will give him about $1 million. Assistant coaches and other staff members who aren’t retained will also be due severance.

    Funny. Guess he got there and realized what a dumpster fire the athletic program is and turned around right away.
