    After far exceeding all the expectations for the past season I'm surprised there hasn't been at least a a hint of a rumor for some type of remuneration for Eaux. I certainly don't believe he has earned a gigantic multi year, multi million dollar package yet, but do think he should be rewarded for what he's accomplished this year and the direction he has the program headed.

    Absolutely not. These extensions and rewards should be reserved for winning something. Division, Conference and up...

    I wouldn’t lose sleep over a slight bump. But I’d also be down with firing his ass if things are stagnant or worse next year.

    An extension was already in the works before the bowl game.

    How bout a 10 win bonus: $100 giftcard to Outback?

    Long as he is locked in for four years with a buyout and no one else is beating down the door, why extend? That just makes no biz sense.

    Throw in a sack of crawfish and you have a deal.

    I agree. I like Eaux... but he does still have to earn his way to that higher pay. I think he did great this season, but if we don't see continued improvement next season, then we wasted a good raise.
