Yeah, definitely a long shot based on the money and the timeline. My only hope was that we've all made it so terrible on him that he's found something else, and is willing to make a deal. I know that I wouldn't want to stick around in his shoes, even if I was owed a few more years of salary.

Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode when Geroge was working for Play Now, and no one wanted him there after they found out he wasn't really handicapped.

RE: Rumor Mill: Compher Out?
The Compher rumor and the news of the "emergency BOT meeting" were announced just hours apart, but per the source of the rumor, were NEVER related. The BOT meeting is not athletics related.

Just because we won't see Compher gone at the conclusion of the BOT meeting in NO way means that he is safe. The rumor is (true or not) is that ECU and Compher are negotiating a buyout which would pay him his longevity bonus plus next year's salary. Then we would part ways. This is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.


Go Pirates!

His 5 year extension was probably the most I'll conceived decision the BOT has ever made. Compher's continued presence is bleeding ECU athletics dry and is having horrible ripple effects on the university and the community. His retention is not economically feasible in the long or short term. Whatever it takes, he has to go.

FWIW - the rumor is that ECU and Compher are negotiating a buyout that would pay Compher the following:

1) 1 year's salary
2) His longevity bonus, which was like $120K or something like that

Go Pirates!

I'm not saying it's not true, but I just have a hard time believing it due to timing. We are going through a coaching search and, according to our beat reporter, Compher is actively working on the coaching search. I have a hard time believing we would be working to buy out our athletic director yet still have him run a coaching search. If that is true then we are way more incompetent at the top than just Compher.

RE: Rumor Mill: Compher Out?
The BoT agenda for this afternoons meeting shows it as a closed session. I'm not reading anything into that by the way. It was reported by one news outlet that athletics would not be discussed though. So there's that. When something official comes out from the university I'll believe it.

Just to clarify, I didn't hear that the BOT meeting had anything to do with Compher. I would think that, if his departure was imminent, that decision/deal would have been made prior to a meeting taking place in the future.

RE: Rumor Mill: Compher Out?
Live@5 yesterday

-Talked about it without talking about "it"
-Spent the rest of the time complaining about how UNC is scheduling UNC-Charlotte, Central Florida, and ODU instead of ECU going forward.

No worries, I wasn't insinuating that you did. And I agree.

It was also stated on another board that he gave up the car that the university gave him. That apparently happened months ago though.

That's because he wanted a Prius.

Wow! That's incredible! Too bad we can't get some damages in addition to the refund.

I don't see why everyone is complaing, we've wanted to be treated like UNC for 100+ years now. The same teams are finally starting to schedule both of us 02-13-banana02-13-banana02-13-banana Equality!

More discussion on Live@5 for the lazies out there. Short story, while he's turned in his car and sold his house, no official news yet. They do take a few calls, which is always entertaining.
