Uh, I'm pretty sure that not doing your job but then paying for lunch for your coworkers every once in a while or bringing in breakfast sometimes is classic "mailing it in" behavior. You know you're not actually working so you supply food every so often to stay on everybody's good side. It's a solid strategy. I've seen people make it work in an office environment, but I'm kind of impressed that someone made it work for $40M.

He's totally the guy who brings in donuts  raw  potatoes when he plans to leave at noon on Friday.

Fixed for historical accuracy.

so let me understand the math.

Strong got paid by Texas for 2014-16, and 2017-2018 (2 years pay no work)

was paid by USF for 2017,-2019 and 2020/2021. (2 years pay, no work)

So he get paid for not coaching 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021 , ie 4 years of salary for nothing.  Wow! That's about $15-16 mil total right???

uh. Charlie Strong was fired by Texas 11/26/16 and hired by USF on 12/11/16

Hopefully this thread can die in a fire it is time to move on.

Your pompous suggestion is weighed against the fact he was just fired.

Yeah, how that's "proof" of not mailing it in is beyond me.

His contract was back loaded at USF, Texas paid all but 100k of his salary in 17 & 18 but he didn’t get double paid. 

pretty sure thats incorrect.  with him being fired, I was almost positive his contract had some wording that 1, he had to keep trying to get hired as a HC.  and 2.  if he took another HC job Texas would still pay his contracted $5mil  minus HALF his salary at the new school. 

i.e.  If he was making $2.5M at USF, Texas paid him $3.75M, and USF paid him $2.5M.  It encouraged him to get a new job and still saved Texas money.  Also, I am pretty sure it had wording that wouldnt have allowed him to sign for only $200k his first 2 years with a school while having a massive $2.5M+ backend deal.

Lots of "pretty sure" going on in your post. And you'd be wrong. 

Strong's base salary paid him 1 million a year while he was still finishing out his contract at Texas, and Texas paid the rest. And shockingly, yes, his total 9.8 million contract (of which there is speculation it was even larger and paid for by the USF booster club, an amount which hasn't been released) was back-loaded. After the Texas money ran out, his base from USF jumped from 1 million to 2.5 million immediately, with other incremental raises thereafter.

Next stop, Walmart bakery.... unless HEB or Randall’s offer first.

He'd last less than a day. Man can't bake a cake for his life.

He’d get fired his first day. 

Boss: Strong why aren’t you baking any cakes?

Charlie: *blank stare* The cake is already baked..... *points at packaged cupcakes and muffins on the shelves

Boss: You’re fired. We’ll send you you “buyout” check in the mail.

I used to live on the route of a mail carrier who looked like Charlie Strong, so this hits close to home.

Did he routinely misdeliver mail addressed to the incorrect zip code?

No, but for some strange reason, he kept leaving us potato-flour cakes.

Nope, though I think Red actually believed Charlie would make a good DC.

Dayum....Red's still alive.    Thought he had cashed in around the time Jamail did.

Jokes on Charlie. He gave them the wrong zip code to mail the check to. Returned to sender.

Didn't them fellas in the USF boosters org sell ol' Charlie a house this year? Seems like it was $3+megabux for a place that was on the market for a looooonnnnggggg spell and latest asking price was around $2megabux. Seems like there was a deal for some of Charlie's "future" earnings being part of the sale... got a feeling Charlie might be upside down on the fine mansion there...

He was such a swell guy, I was pulling for him. 

I was really really rooting for him to succeed.
