    does anyone else think his contract is a little low? I know hes not going to make the big time money at ecu or even what Holtz was making when he left, but it still seems low. I don’t know all the details of Holtz’s contract at ecu, maybe it is on par for his original contract when he started…

    not for a first time head coach. i think it’s about right. also, he can make it more by winning the championship and bowl games.
