To the surprise of no one, the Washington Huskies extended coach Sark’s contract. He gets what amounts to itty bitty raises in each of the next five seasons as well as buyout terms that trend more favorably towards the coach.
This is all great news! Not that I believe this is the end of things; I’m sure if he has a couple more winning seasons we’ll be talking about another increase in salary and/or years. But, you know what? It’s worth it.
Check out any of the professional blogs out there and you’ll see Sark paying dividends left and right. Hell, that win in the Holiday Bowl alone has brought in some last-minute prospects who will hopefully make an impact with us down the line!
Husky fans want nothing more than to see another dynasty a la Don James. We want Sark here for the rest of his coaching life! Best way to do that is to keep the man happy. A bump in salary and job security sure doesn’t hurt.
