Leon’s contract can be terminated at any time with a max 6 month payout.We could not afford a payout and to bring in a $2mill a year coaching contract. The soft cap would already be maxxed due to the number of our rookies playing seniors. I'd rather see a better credentialed right hand man to help out.
So, if - big if - the club wants to change coach for 2022 it can do so.
I agree Clarko could be payed more elsewhere, but I expect his motivation for coaching on - as opposed to retiring or doing media - would be football success not money.
Re ‘prefer a better credentialed RH man’, that’s a reasonable view.
There is another possible scenario that may personally suit Clarkson.
Perhaps in 2022 he chooses to be a Consultant / ‘Director of Football’ rather than a HC.
This may suit he and his family better.
He’d probably sort out the Kelly and Hopper contracts in about 10 minutes, and then have fun deciding who we take with our two Top 10 draft picks.
Overall, I think this is a truly unique situation and anything is possible.
