Dennis Brackin of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that Minnesota is still paying $5.2M in buyout costs associated with the firings of former basketball coach Dan Monson and football coach Glen Mason.

The article also notes the buyouts for some oft-mentioned coaches:

• Brady Hoke (San Diego State): $1.5 million until Dec. 15, when it drops to $1 million.

• Al Golden (Temple): at least $2 million, according to published reports.

• Randy Edsall (Connecticut): $500,000 buyout.

• Dan Mullen (Mississippi State): believed to have a buyout similar to Edsall; Mississippi State officials have not complied with a request for Mullen’s contract.

• Kevin Sumlin (Houston): $600,000

• Troy Calhoun (Air Force): $565,000

• Larry Fedora (Southern Mississippi) $400,000 to $500,000

Tubby must wonder what is going on all around him.

Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune outlines his four step plan for Minnesota football, which includes 1) firing Tim Brewster, 2) hiring Glen Mason as a temp, 3) firing athletic director Joel Maturi, and 4) consider hiring either former Gopher QB Marc Trestman, currently the coach of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes, Mason on a permanent basis or Houston’s Kevin Sumlin.
