I hope that is correct. FA is a good fellow who suffered through reduced scholarships and a very public lack of commitment from the AD's office. A perfect example of how life is not fair.

I wish Coach Anderson the best. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him end up as the pitching coach at Texas or another top flight program in the next few years.

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.

So, the buyout is a lump sum? I had heard that it was to be paid in smaller intervals while he isn't employed elsewhere.
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.

Pretty sure he was the pitching coach at Texas prior to becoming OSU's HC.
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.
