You seem to be saying White should show more loyalty to his players, and then say if you were an owner you wouldn’t show loyalty by giving long term contracts.That’s you
That’s your answer “that’s life”? Not good enough for me. Hey coach I had 30 schools to choose from and I picked this school for a few reasons and your one of them. Trust in me the way I trusted in you.
If another job came along and offered more perks, more power/say in how program is run I would seriously consider the offer. For the same position to uproot my life just for money I would pass.
I’m probably in the minority here but I’ll leave you with this. If I’m a MLB player I would take greater satisfaction in being regarded as the best player in my position than the highest paid player in my position.
Money doesn’t always mean the best. Many times it just equates to people over paying. Markets change.
If I’m an owner I’m giving one year incentive laden contracts. None of these multi year guaranteed deals with no motivational lingo.
Whatever, I’ll agree to disagree, while saying I can see your perspective.
I’m sure there were other factors besides the money, and the players. I have no idea the politics involved, or if Coach White is originally from that part of the country. Maybe he has grandkids in Texas.
I’m just saying I’m not going to judge the man for making a decision he felt was best for him. And the girls he left at Oregon, as far as I know, they still get to get their scholarship at a D1 school that hopefully they chose based on some other merits aside from softball.
