Sorry to hear that for you. Most of these guys are millionaires, and they know they are getting fired in a couple of weeks, so for them, it makes sense to decline. Sad you weren't given an option though.

They are probably working harder now than during a normal year.

This speaks more to the fact that many of these coaches think they are getting let go after this year so why take a pay cut. Remember Pruitt fired the d line coach during a game a few weeks ago. I wouldn’t take a cut either after that.

You want to bitch about them, but a contract is a contract. Of course, the should be fired for sucking.

That’s what coaches ask for all the time through incentives and raises based off increased revenue which is tied to their performance. To act like they aren’t compensated as such when the university makes more is off base

That is what the term "voluntary" means. Considering who they coach for, kinda ironic, huh?
