Jones taking care of business. From Rivals today:


One more thing not to miss: Jones and Hart have had discussions regarding all of the assistant coaches' contracts, and those items will be formally ironed out in the coming weeks. However, multiple sources tell VolQuest.com that linebackers coach Tommy Thigpen, widely seen as the single greatest catalyst other than Jones in this year's landmark recruiting class and Rivals.com's Recruiter of the Year, has received a raise and a new deal. Sources have said all along that the Vols "had a plan in place" to retain Thigpen, popular with his current players as well as recruits, even as schools like Ohio State and North Carolina came calling.

Give Thig a major raise and/or a big bonus. No. 1 recruiter in the nation this year! Keep the man happy, and pay him what he's worth as a recruiter and coach. Better do it soon, too!

Then why have it? If its not designed to be some type of reward, incentive, etc. why have it? Putting pay at risk for performance's sake isn't new. It's 40+ years old.

"If they don't perform, they get fired". Precisely my point - and their buyout is based on their salary which happens to occupy too much of the total compensation IMHO. No, whats happened here is that agents have gotten too much of a say-so and E$PN is paying what they're paying.....result? An overpaid, underachieving coaching industry.

Do I think UT coaches are working hard on recruiting? Yes, but that is 1/5 of the job.

Having structured plans such as this which paid in the millions, I am completely shocked that their total compensation is so "salary heavy". Mistake. You always put a carrot out there to improve performance.
Hell yea. This structure is nuts. How does a liberty bowl appearance warrant twice the bonus of an SEC/BCS championship? wtf?

Bump the SEC/Title bonus to $100K/$200K for assistants, $250K/$500K for CBJ. Lower the regular bowl bonus significantly...
