And he's worth every penny of it.
Not just because he's won a few trophies lately.
Yes, he's obviously an outstanding coach - who's produced excellent results.
More than that:
He's thoroughly committed to the collegiate level of the sport. He's not using his college position to score a quick turnaround to coach a tiny group of select pros, and suck big money from some shoe company for two hours of work per day.
He's also thoroughly committed to the University of Florida. Again, not looking for a bigger payoff somewhere else. And then a bigger still payoff from yet another place.
He's built an awesome program, which he is clearly dedicated to making even more awesome.
He's as good of a recruiter as there is, although with his program, record, and facilities he doesn't even need to be.
He cares about his athletes. And everyone knows it.
He deserves a big pay day.
He deserves a long contract.
And UF deserves credit for giving it to him.
The UF-Holloway model is exactly what college track and field needs more of.
