If Lashlee took a pay cut I believe there was a mutilated agreement to part ways.

Likely...he needed to get out from Gus's shadow....might turn out the be the best thing that happens for him if he does well....will greatly improve his resume.

Thanks for all his effort...wish him the best....maybe to become a head coach he felt he needed to expand to another part of the country...hope he remembers UCONN #1 rival....UCF....good luck....hope to see him become a head coach in the near future.

I don't think Lashlee was "fired."  He wanted to become a head coach eventually.  And he knew that everyone looking at him when at Auburn would ask what a lot on this forum ask, "How much play calling did you really do under Gus Malzahn?"  So he needed to go out on his own away from Gus Malzahn and prove himself.  Although it is a paycut, it is a nessesary move to get where he wants to be.  Over the long run, it will earn him more money with a head coaching offer if he succeeds at UCONN.

I like seeing teams that really never see success start to do well, so I hope Lashlee does really well there for that fan base.

As someone who regularly bashed, him, I wish Rhett nothing but success. I do sometimes wonder if I was unduly harsh with his being tied to Gus' hip for so long. Good luck at UConn CRL, I hope you prove me wrong in my opinion of your abilities.
