Kentucky just extended Mark Stoops through 2019. This is an additional extension after the extension through 2017 that he signed in May of this year. The new deal bumps his salary to an average of $3.6 million a year. Meyer makes $4.6 million with bonuses, which makes Stoops contract look beyond ridiculous in my eyes. Either that or we're paying Urban way too little.
Regardless, I highly doubt Stoops leaving with that kind of contract where he has absolutely zero pressure to succeed. Additionally, I'm guessing the extensions included a very steep buyout to leave.

Alex, you mentioned over 8 commitments by April 1st. I can't imagine you were counting on these three addiional commitments (Trout probably, not sure about other 2), but who are the other 3 or more you see committing by April 1st?
