Beyond bad? Or not financially constraining to do so

You forget that Eustachy had built in his contract that he could auto-extend it to maintain its 5 year status 5 times, so unless Parker was going to not have any negotiating power and not have to pay north of $5MM to get rid of a head basketball coach for a sport that fans weren't exactly lining up to fill Moby regularly even when were good.

You also forget that when the Bobo extension time occured he had been to 3 straight bowl games, something we hadn't done since Sonny, and in CFB you can't really have a FB coach on a deal where there is no buyout. If he succeeds the next year he is gone and CSU would have gotten hardly anything and we were starting over. If he doesn't (which he didn't) then we still owed him and we were starting over. In hindsight, yes resigning Bobo didn't work, and I said at the time that I didn't like that he was getting such a raise in pay and such a large buyout (those were more the failure than the extension itself) but if he does succeed and Joe did not extend him then the conversation is how bad of a job Joe did in not locking him up long-term. Same conversation fans had about Jack not locking up Tim Miles.

To compare Bohn at USC and Parker at CSU is stupid. We don't have USC $ in atheltics. We don't get 10% of USC $. Helton will be paid $10MM to leave USC. They get 1000% the tv contract we have and his buyout is 200% Addazio's. That is the difference and comparing the two is insane to be honest, and to also be honest, USC should have fired him 2 years ago, but what did they do? They did exactly what Parker did with Bobo which was give him an extension.
