Unfortunately it is just the way it is. What is a school to do if the coach is unhappy and wants to go somewhere else? Say no and then have that guy out there (not) recruiting? Coaching the team?

I don't know all the details (probably could google it) but I recall Kent State suing Geno Ford a few years ago for breaking his contract to leave for Bradley. I'm pretty sure Kent State won about $1,000,000.

$1.2M to be exact. It was in his contract.

Wow, I'm surprised he agreed to that damages clause. I doubt that is in too many contracts. By the way, Geno played with Gary Trent at OU.

It is one thing to agree to it but when he wanted out, he should have gone to the school and said that he was not happy and wanted to pursue another job. Make it clear that they would not want him around. Maybe negotiate a reduced buyout. Instead, he asked for permission to pursue the Bradley job and didn't consider that clause in his contract. I think Kent went after Bradley, too, for interference.

I played against Geno in high school, 2 of the 4 years. Guy was ridiculous. He scored well over 2000 points in his high school career.
