We all know how those Scott Barnes "national searches" turn out.

I wouldn’t say fired since he waived all contractual obligations basically foregoing $10 million he’d be owed. Something more has to be going on with it.

Seeing on Twitter that they mutually agreed to waive all remaining compensation. If true, WOW...must have had cause

(sorry InterMed, beat me to it)

Interestingly, it's being called a "mutual agreement," which most of the time would be the school doing the coach a favor by not calling it a "firing." However, Pat Forde is reporting that GA is waiving any claim to the rest of his contract, which would indicate both sides were in agreement.

Bring Gary back. Yes, you can go home again. What we have is not working.

What blows my mind is the money Gary left on the table. His contract was through 2021 and he agreed to basically rip it up. Is there something more to this? When was the last time a coach did this without an investigation or a better job lined up.

I hope Hartwell has Matt Wells in his office right now asking him how the position of Vice President and coach of the USU recreational golf club sounds for the next year and a half. I hear it pays almost a million a year.

Gary is always thinking one step ahead like a carpenter...who makes stairs. He undoubtedly has a plan. My hope is that he was contacted after that embarrassing outing Saturday against CSU and the plan is for him to come take over for Wells.

No clue, but UTEP coach Sean Kugler did similar and just up and quit last week, waiving whatever contractual obligation there was to pay him the remainder.

Yeah, but he could have done that pretty much on OSU's dime. Is he gonna donate his salary too?

Well, unless he asked to have his name removed, GA is, technically, LDS.

Hahaha...now let all the speculation and rumors fly!!

Anyone actually watch GA coach since he's been at OSU? He is a beaten man, the whole HC thing is just not jiving well with him anymore. I think he needs to take a step back as a coordinator and relieve himself of the duties and pressure that come with the HC position for a while. Maybe even take a break from coaching all together.

I'd be on board with letting him be a special consultant to the defense but that is about the extent I would ever want to see his involvement with USU ever again.

I wonder if his health is okay. He had to be under enormous pressure and we know how that took a toll on him here. I don’t know if health reasons would terminate a contract if he was unable to continue.

In any case, I wish he and his family the very best.

Edit: I imagine if it was for health reasons they probably would have stated that in the announcement. Who knows?

BTW, can you imagine the awkwardness of that meeting with Scott Barnes? Barnes probably hid behind the pressure of boosters and school presidency wanting him to take action.

At least he had the balls to do it though. Mr. Hartwell? paging Mr. Hartwell....

That's what I was thinking. Maybe that money he left on the table to walk away was the price of preserving his physical and mental well-being.

To be honest, we're not in as bad a place as OSU. I can't see a mid year firing of Matt Wells after a 3-3 start with a win against BYU. I hope we see it if we end up below .500, though.

Completely different situations. It's harder to bring up a program in the PAC 12 than it is the wac or MWC. Gary can coach. He can recruit Utah. We need that here. Business is business and we need someone line Gary. Gary is available- we should jump on it. Hire Gary, let Wells go. The players don't like him and that's a good enough reason for me. We stink right now anyway. Very little downside with huge potential for benefits.

My guess is he is off to the Utes in some capacity. Probably paid more than our cheap a$$ school.

Yes we are. We have no FBS lineman and a QB who would get schooled in my low level recreational semi-pro league who is apparently the best on the team. Yes, they might get 6 wins including 2 against sub 150 schools and 4 more against sub 100 but they are done for and its not gonna change with a Wells extension.

I also completely disagree with the board on this one. If Andersen desires to coach at all then Wells should finish out his contract in some other position.

$12,630,555

That is what Oregon State owed Gary through 2021. He is waiving any right to that.

There has to be more to this story.

That's the kind of decision people make with a gun to their head. Just saying. I know Gary's well off but 11.6 million is still 11.6 million (or at least 6 after taxes).

Add me to this list.

I hope he takes some time off and gets himself right, both physically and mentally.

If this is true, my respect for the guy just skyrocketed and it was pretty damn high to begin with.
