    McCaffery's Deal....

    His original deal was for 6 yrs, guarantee of 1.1mil per year. He was two years into that six years, so had four remaining.

    New deal is 7 years...so its basically a three year extension of first deal, but he gets a nice raise.

    He will make $1.3 next year. If Iowa gets to NCAA NEXT YEAR, it goes up to $1.7. If no NCAA next year, it moves to $1.5.

    New deal provides Fran McCaffery, Iowa basketball with stability | TheGazette

    It's a good, fair, competitive contract. Fran has earned it, imo.

    I really hope that Fran realizes his stated goal of finishing his career as the coach at Iowa,which means a very long run,beyond this contract.

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- It took just two seasons for Fran McCaffery to take the downtrodden Iowa program and make it a respectable one.

    99% season ticket renewal. The primary voice of the fan. Big $$$ donors a LOOOOOOOOOONG way away from going sour on Ferentz. The primary voice of the Athletic Department.

    From article:

    When I came here, my goal was to finish my career here,” he said. “I wouldn’t want to finish it at the expiration of this contract by any means. This is not a stepping stone situation. It was never viewed that way; it shouldn’t be viewed that way. There’s no place higher than the Big Ten, unless you have somebody who always aspired to coach in the NBA which I don’t. I want to coach in college. My family is very happy in Iowa City. I really enjoy the people that I work with.”
