Thread: Leaked Audio from Willie Fritz's last meeting with the Players

  1. #1

    Default Leaked Audio from Willie Fritz's last meeting with the Players

    http://www.forgotten5.com/2017/09/25...rgia-southern/

    Leaked audio from Willie Fritz's last players meeting ahead of the Go Daddy Bowl. He explains his side of the story. Was not offered an extension by TK.

    “They told me when I proved myself that I would be given job security. That wasn’t the case.”

    Just came here to post this. I've heard from several people that he was offered a sizable extension with a large increase in pay. Am I misunderstanding what I was told, were the people talking about the extension misinformed, or did Fritz lie to players? Anybody here can help me understand what exactly happened then?

    Couple of little notes, neither of which are inconsistent with your transcript but might be illuminating to your analysis:

    The actual term of his contract was only 12 months, although his salary was guaranteed for 3 years (maybe 4? I can't remember now). It is my understanding that Fritz wanted his actual employment contract to be 4-5 years, for obvious reasons, and that although we did provide him with an offer of a raise (whether unsolicited or as a counter to Tulane), it was still a 12-month agreement and that we refused to proved the longer term, and that this was basically the most important thing to WF. So, while he had some measure of income security, he had no actual job security, and could theoretically be forced to renegotiate his contract every single year.

    Considering that we gave TS a 4-year employment contract, that makes the whole question of being unable to get together on the term with WF all the more confusing.

    Anyway, that's my understanding. Take it for what it's worth.

    Only chance of this team winning less than 6 games is if it's ravenged by injuries. Anybody predicting 4 wins or some crap like that is clueless. Post Arkansas St game is going to be fun around here to watch the crow being eaten. Heck, even post UNH is going to provide some fun.

    Welp TK just lost me 100%. Get the f off my campus if you cant give the coach that had the most successful two first years in the FBS since the rule changes a multi year guaranteed contract and a salary bump....GTFO. Sounded like to me the guy was not asking for the moon nor did we have to match Tulane dollar for dollar. Anyone think he really wanted to go to dumpster fire Tulane for a few more bucks?

    He could have tore TK up publicly and never did either.....eating some crow on why Fritz left as he never even hinted at that BS.

    Honestly what in the hell is going on?

    Tom Kleinlein is a bad bad man

    with the lawsuits filed against him, the recent NCAA sanctions, the news that its his fault we didn't get Bryan Cook sooner, the porn on his twitter which is why he deleted it, and now this, why is he still in Statesboro?
