Falling on the sword

It sure didn’t take long for Virginia and Pete Gillen to
go their separate ways. Was he fired or did he resign? Who knows, who cares.

Fox’s Mike DeCourcy bemoans the money factor hanging over Gillen's failed tenure:

“Nothing he accomplished in his first three seasons justified the awarding of a 10-year, $9 million contract that skewed all future contracts awarded Division I coaches.”

But Virginia wants a coach that will compliment the majesty of John Paul Jones Arena. How much will that cost?
