    I don't see Avery being a guy that is long for the college game. I think the 1st NBA offer to come his way, he's going to bolt.

    I don't see him being a guy that will take well to playing second-fiddle to football. Everything is going to seem good right now, and he's making a boatload of cash, but I think it'll eat at him as time goes on.

    Lastly, I don't know if he translates well to the college game. NBA and college coaches have very different mindsets. Can he adapt to what it takes to coach at this level? I have my doubts.

    I read Johnson will be the 3rd highest paid coach behind Cal and Billy D.
