I like it. The team is very young, W/L record has improved
every year he has been here. His recruiting is really really good, and I think this coaching staff works very well together.
The difference with this deal and Bobo's is that Medved isn't getting any sort of raise. He was scheduled to make $750K this year and get $25K raises every year for the next two years. In his new deal he is fixed at $750K per year. That is all about a coach that wants to be here long term. And if you recall, his pay is like $400K less than Eustachy's was.
We are probably two years away from being an NCAAT team, but this is a team that I would not be surprised to have a lot of Juniors this year and Seniors next year that will return those Seniors for a 5th and 6th year so it could be an extremely exciting few years. Assuming this team is going to be as good as I think they will be, this contract is a steal and is 6th in the conference for salary per year, keeping in mind that as a very young team last season we were very close to finishing 2nd or 3rd in the conference.
Finally, Medved represents the school exactly that way I want as a fan. Does he need to win CCs and tourneys, yes. But he is building something now and being paid as someone who is.
