Florida State President Is Asking Boosters For More Cash To Hire New Football Coach
Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports
What happens when you fire your head coach (Willie Taggart) during the season with four years remaining on his deal after signing him to a $30 Million contract AND you're still on the hook for roughly $18 million? Well, you have to ask boosters for more money, like Florida State president John Thrasher is...
quote:

"In 2019, FSU is reaching out to its most loyal donors to ask for their generous support as we embark on the Renaissance of Seminole Football," Thrasher said in a Nov.20 letter obtained by Warchant.com.

"Today, if you are able, I ask that you increase your annual commitment to the next giving level for 2020."

"If you can't make that financial commitment, please consider a one-time 20 percent increase and encourage your family and friends to join Seminole Boosters today."

Thrasher adds, "I am grateful so many of our donors have reached out to ask how they can help, as the transition to a new coaching staff will take a significant investment."

Any coaching candidate who accepts that Florida State job without securing a very substantial buyout is retarded.

John Thrasher is a clown. Glad he's no longer a local politician in my area.

I think Burt was pretty much broke when he died.

I don't ever recall an SEC program begging for money. That conference must be weak.
