According to Mike Casazza's article in the Daily Mail, Mike Barwis, WVU's former GOD of strength and conditioning, still owes WVU $50,000 from a buy-out contained in his 2005 contract. However, in another athletic department screw-up, there is no deadline or payment schedule for the buy-out.
Great job, Slick Eddie! We will most likely settle for $25,000, if we pursue the matter at all.
Bullshit like this is why we need Charley West as Athletic Director. Not only would he pay people to write unbreakable contracts, he would also have the contracts call for instant death if a coach ever left WVU on bad terms. "Once a Mountaineer, Always a Mountaineer."
