    If he's mentioning "financial stability", you know it's about the money.

    I was thinking the same thing a couple of weeks ago, then he agreed to a 10 year contract extension shortly after the WCWS.

    Oregon Ducks softball coach Mike White is leaving for Texas - Sports - The Register Guard - Eugene, OR

    It sounds like he will be getting a heck of a pay bump, being second only to Patty Gasso's $925k/year.

    Walton used the threat of the Texas job as leverage to get Florida to cough up a bigger contract. Not sure if the headhunters ever contacted him directly but he sure told Florida that he was going to listen if they did.

    Mike White likely asked Oregon as well to match and they just said 'No'. Roster-wise the cupboard may not be totally bare in Texas, but it is certainly not as full as it currently is at Oregon.

    I guess we are on the slow climb to being just like Football and Basketball :-)
