One thing is for sure, there are not many things more annoying than getting “screwed” out of money.

That seems to be the case for former University of Miami head coach and current Detroit Lions assistant coach, Al Golden.

According to TMZ, Golden is suing Miami, claiming they “screwed” him out of $3 million after they fired him in 2015.

From TMZ:

“Golden says he signed a massive multi-million dollar contract to lead the Canes back in 2011 — a deal loaded with incentives. The contract says Golden’s initial base salary was $150k per year but the upside was tremendous. 

For example … as part of his deal, the University of Miami guaranteed that in addition to his base salary and bonuses, Golden would get MILLIONS from third parties for TV and radio deals. 

$1.25 mil for year 1, $1.675 mil for year 2 … and incrementally increasing all the way up to $2.94 million for year 9. 

Golden would receive a $750k bonus if Miami won the BCS Championship game, $400k for a 2nd place finish, $300k for a non-title BCS bowl game 1st place finish and so on. 

More bonuses include … $25k for 10 regular season wins, $75k for 11 wins and $175k for 12 wins. 

He also got $5,000 annually from UM’s deal with Nike.”

So, how should Lions GM Bob Quinn be graded on this trade?

Let me begin by saying that I have never been more confident in handing out a grade than I am now. (Well, giving the Teez Tabor draft pick an F was pretty solid too)
