Interesting Tidbit from ESPN



This awful story regarding Fine's alleged abuses has caused some reporting that is interesting.   Not earth shattering but interesting.     

 

"A source familiar with the situation said Syracuse assistant Mike Hopkins plans on succeeding Boeheim as head coach whenever Boeheim steps aside as Orange coach, due to an "iron-clad contract" that was revamped and approved by the board of trustees two years ago.

Hopkins was first tabbed as Boeheim's head coach designate in 2007. But, according to the source, the contract had "holes in it." But after Hopkins flirted with leaving the Orange two years ago, and was interviewed by Charlotte, the contract was restructured.

The pact had to be approved by the chancellor and the board of trustees, according to the source. Hopkins, who played for Boeheim at Syracuse from 1989 to 1993, has been the top assistant under Boeheim for the last five years, even though Fine held the title associate head coach. The source said that Fine was promoted but not given a raise at the time and remained bitter about the Hopkins promotion."

So Hops contract is now ironclad and Bernie was bitter about his promotion?    Interesting.
