    A chance to work with Jerry Wainwright is one you can't possibly pass up.

    Am I right?

    Jerry's a good guy. How much longer does he have there?

    My guess is the job pays in the low 60s.

    I think Jerry will have to show tremendous progress this season if he hopes to be around for another. The fans and alumni, though they respect him as a person, hate him as a coach. And rightfully so. he's been a disaster.

    Still, a great guy.
