Unless you figure he didn't get a raise from the 3.5 mil he was making as OC three years ago.

Yeah I read this in the 90s. Jerry walked around every night back then switching off lights and stuff to save some dough. I guess he turned up the AC too to save money overnight. That's the truth. I'm not sure if he does it now.
Here's the deal: I don't figure Jerry is such a cheapskate except when he has to pay $8-9 mil dead money to Garrett - PLUS pay a marquis coach like Lovie Smith or someone another $4-5 mil a year on top of that the next two years if Jerry could sign Lovie or someone for a two year contract, not sure what the length of contract is going for now if even a Lovie Smith would take only two years ...
That makes the next two years' head coach about $20 million if Jason were fired .. that is, the new coach's money plus Garrett's dead money ..
Whereas Ryan is owed maybe $3 mil next year? Promote Eberflus at $2 mil a year or something and 3 mil the following year? That's $8 mil the next two years for a DC.
$20 mil for a HC switch next two years vs. $8 mil for a DC switch .. just a guess.
And all of you wonder why Jerry doesn't hire a GM. That's even more millions out of Jerry's pocket ..
Just saying ....
