Inside source: Chizik target of UCF

Postby gatorspook » Sun Nov 25, 2012 3:56 pm

This guy is in a position to know, and he said that UCF wants to make a run for Chizik. The obvious question is the settlement terms....will Chizik be free, or will he have to stay unemployed to collect? And will there even be a buyout considering the NCAA allegations at Auburn? And would the allegations come with show cause that will turn off UCF? Though obviously UCF doesn't seem to be concerned all that much with NCAA investigations.

This might actually be a good fit....

What happened to O'Leary?

UCF should go after O'Brien. Chizik has had 1 good season (in 6 as a head coach).....and 3 losing seasons.

O'Leary is on his way out for the player death and coverup, and other things.

Cam Newton is not walking back through that door. I don't care how much you pay him.

Chizik sucks period. No Cam, no NC at the Barn.

1. What player death and cover up? Perhaps I missed it or it slipped my mind.

2. I would think Barn fired him and his staff and they owe him the buyout regardless of finding another job. Wasn't he under contract for the Barn thru 2015? If so, does a buyout require you to not find another job for that time?

If they fired him, he's free to seek other employment. If he gets another job, that salary will offset whatever he would have been paid at Barn. In other words if his salary was 3 mil at Barn at he signs at UCF for 750k, Barn still pays him the 2.25 mil for the guaranteed years.

I think the problem was more the street agents. They didn't seem to care much about the player death.

You might be right about the street agents. i can't remember.

NV: Here you go. law could probably explain it better than I could.


ORLANDO, Fla. -- A jury has found that the University of Central Florida's Athletic Association was negligent in a football player's 2008 death and awarded his parents $10 million.

The decision came after about five hours of deliberation Thursday night in the wrongful death trial of Ereck Plancher, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Plancher collapsed and died following conditioning drills at the school's football complex in March 2008. Orange County medical examiner Joshua Stephany and three experts hired by Plancher family attorneys testified he died from complications of sickle cell trait.

The jurors found the athletic association was negligent and failed to do everything possible to save Plancher's life. It entered the amount of damages it believed should be awarded to Plancher's parents, Enock and Gisele Plancher. The total was $5 million apiece.

The jury also decided there was no "clear and convincing evidence" that UCF's athletic association was guilty of gross negligence and determined it should not face punitive damages.

"If there's one message that we have sent very loudly and clearly, the welfare of any student-athlete is at the top of any football program," Plancher family attorney Steve Yerrid said. "And that's how to have a winning program."

UCF spokesman Grant Heston said the program continues to mourn Plancher's death but the athletic association will appeal the decision.

"We believe the appeals court will side with us," Heston said. "We feel that from pretrial rulings to ruling during the trial that there's an ample of appeal opportunity and we strongly believe that this will be a quick process because it's very clear that this was the wrong decision."

The jury's decision not to award punitive damages "shows what we have in place works" and the school continues to do everything possible to protect its athletes, Heston said.

I would be very surprised if this was true. Chiz is the Anti-Boise State. He recruits great, but can't develop talent. Boise gets 2 & 3 stars and develops them really well. It seems like UCF needs somone who can develop the talent.

Also, Chiz does NOT have much of a clean record. UCF does not need the probation that Chiz will bring down upon them.

Interesting. I did miss that. Might not have been nationwide. Too bad for the family.
