Default Re: Oliver Purnell to Bama Rumors

You are missing one important thing Frank. I know a lot of coaches just say things.....but OP has said NUMEROUS times that the ACC was his dream conference, and that he wanted to coach in the ACC his whole career. IMO, OP will not go anywhere outside of the ACC, but if he would, BAMA would not be the place. Again, that is my opinion, but it is also taking OP at his word.

You are missing one important point Lee. We ALL do things for money. What I do is not my dream job but I do it for money. When it comes down to money and your dream job money wins every time.

OP is already paid pretty darn well(1.2)...Roy Williams (1.4). Rick Barnes(1.8)Tubby Smith the highest paid bball coach in the land (2.2) if you want some comparison salaries. TDP, needs to give the man one big mack daddy bonus at the conclusion of the season.

But in the end, I CANNOT see a him leaving the ACC for the SEC....maybe the Big East or another ACC school, but not the SEC...IMHO. However, that doesn't mean that TDP can take that for granted. He needs to let OP know how "valued" he is to Tiger Nation...show him the money!!

Yeah Barb and back in the day Broadway Joe and the other big name college players would not pass up the NFL for a startup league just for money. Neither would Dr J and the BB players. Just like politics, sports are about money. Prestige is nice but at the end of the day you go for the bucks.
