I would have to think that if he admitted to covering up criminal activities the University could have tossed his belongings in a box and thrown him out on the street with no buy-out, severance, or otherwise. If @playzwtrux source is reliable, it almost makes the school look, at the least, negligent or, at the worst, conspiratorial. However, most of what McElwain accomplished during his tenure at UF was not positive, so nothing where he was concerned would surprise me. Nor would I be shocked if this was verified and Foley was the conductor.

For all of foley's good effort in non revenue sports, his final football hire alone completely eclipses those positives. Completely.
Mac is the worst excuse for a football coach I've ever seen. He makes people like Steve Sarkesian look like models of competence and professionalism. But we still have a coupe in this forum that think hes 1000 times the coach chump is.
Well, one of them is still employable, the other is getting fat eating pb&js.

I guarantee you theres back channel discussion about Mac. How can a guy who won two division titles at a SEC school go completely unhired with zero major interviews being leaked? No local sources at any achool brought his name up. That piece of trash made himself completely undesirable. I bet Saban eventually sticks his hand out, palm down, and ol Quiverlips begs for a job at rewinding the game film.
I would think a coach that resigns would forfeit the negotiating power during the buyout. Firing without cause (apparently, sucking at your job is not considered “cause” in the coaching profession) is what would’ve given mac the full buyout.
I recall everyone thought SOS was nuts for walking away from the skins after 2 years and forfeiting all that money instead of waiting to be fired just to grab the guaranteed money. He saw his Fun n Gun wasn’t working in the pros, which satisfied his curiosity, so he moved on. Not many coaches are like that and I think it speaks volumes about the HBC’s personal integrity and respect for the game.
But this stuff with Mac .... This guy at best had major personality deficiencies and some of the weirdness I saw and and have heard about suggests mental/emotional issues that Fooley should be flogged for not spotting or examining more closely and any future influence he thinks he is entitled to around here should be forfeit.
Mac is gone; Foley should be too. Now.
