|Tad Boyle is off to an impressive start as Colorado's head coach.|
This year probably wasn’t great timing anyway with his arrival at CU barely a calendar year old. But know this: Colorado is probably going to have to do what it can to up the financial ante if it intends on retaining Boyle past this season and early indications are it will. With incentives Boyle makes just north of $735,000. Don’t be surprised if eventually that number gets pushed to the brink of $1 million or, pardon the pun, a tad more.
It’s new territory for a university a little more familiar with firing its coaches of late than having to battle to keep them. But in one season Boyle went from a relative unknown to being on the brink of a bonafide hot commodity.
