Question about Coaching Contracts

Quick question as it relates to NFL coaching contracts - I beleive most of them are guranteed so if when Synder fired Al Saunders and Gregg Williams Synder was still responsible for the last year remaining on their respective 3 year deals. Now since Al Suanders signed up to be the offensive coordinator of the Rams are the Redskins responsible for any of the contract if there is a difference in the value? I think Saunders was getting like $2 million from the Skins, if the Rams signed him for lets say $1.5 million are the Redskins still on the hook for $500k?

No, I don't believe so. It was briefly discussed over here...

Re: Question about Coaching Contracts

I'm not sure. And to be honest I don't really care. These contracts don't count towards the salary cap at all. And since Danny's pockets are so deep, there's no chance that the outflow to dismissed coaches would hurt the team's ability to pay players or other coaches. So there's no affect on the team. Hence, me no care.

Re: Question about Coaching Contracts

Pat Kirwan talked about this yesterday on NFL radio. Basically he says what Bill B says. He used round numbers to make it easy, but basically we owe Saunders 2Mil/year for the remaining years on his contract. The other team pays whatever, and the skins get that credited to them. For instance, if they pay him 200,000 a year, Snyder writes a check for 1 mill 800,000.

He said that the other team COULD pay Saunders 50 cents, but owners probably aren't willing to do that to each other.

Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Question about Coaching Contracts

Is there standard language in all of the coaching contract clauses that relates to "coaching football" or does it refer to "coaching football in the NFL"?

If Saunders had taken a job at a college as the Offensive Coordinator, would the Skins still get credit for whatever salary he earned there?

Just curious...
