I'm glad for him and his family. Good guy and a good coach. Unfortunately for him, a better pitching coach than head coach, at least so far. I don't believe it's the last that OSU has seen of him, either.
I'm happy for him. Hopefully he can work his way back to becoming a pitching coach at a premier program. So, does this mean that OSU no longer has to pay him? Or was his contract buy out done in one big payment? Anyone know?
Generally when you are let go "without cause", you are due the remainder of your salary on the current contract (or a percentage of that sum as stated in the contract). Just because the person you let go finds a new job doesn't let you off the hook. The total buyout was something like $1.5 MM.
Yeah, he was the pitching coach a Texas when we hired him. It was kind of funny how things worked out. We fired Tom Holliday & he was hired by Texas as their pitching coach. Anderson & Holliday swapped jobs.
I heard there was a chance that Texas would create a position for Coach Anderson after he got fired. But I guess that didn't work out. I wouldn't be surpised to see Augie Garrido hire him back in the future if a position opens up.
