Leach will get some very lucrative offers. A school like UCLA would likely throw a ton of money at him, no? As well as the opportunity to recruit California recruits for his spread.
I know he has a quasi-relationship with your AD and is likely to relish the chance to play Tech every season, but can KU really stay in the financial ballpark if UCLA comes and offers him $3 million+/season? They'll also likely give him a hell of a recruiting budget and more money to pay his assistants than KU could.
I love the guy, more power to you if you get him, but can the finances really work out?
from what I understand... There are plenty of donors lined up to take care of this financial burden and do whats right for the football program. I could be wrong, but that is the why I have heard/read it from some reliable people.
