Hope this isn’t the end of the road for Coach Garrido.
He is paid $800,000 yearly after getting a $160,000 raise this year and gets a $50,000 yearly increase during his contract. If released, Garrido receives $300,000 for each season left. He could lose his job for a violation of UT’s “standard of conduct” and get no severance.
And we wonder about coaching salaries!!!
