I don't have any inside info so I am really just guessing. While I think he would happily take any raise that came his way, I am not sure money is the deciding factor. When he came to town he talked about a 4 year plan and he has succeeded with that. He has 7 guys graduating out of the program. To be sure he has some talent returning and some interesting transfers but this appears to be a reload at best or perhaps a rebuild..Does he want to do that again at Nevada?
It is really hard to have long term sustained success at a mid major. Maybe he is happy to have a home and stays . I sure as hell hope so. Either way, he has put Nevada back on the map and the program is light years ahead of where it was under Carter. The job pays well now. There is a nice basketball facility. Good coaches will be interested in the gig.
