Mack Rhoades move from Missouri to Baylor will not be a cheap one.
The former Missouri athletic director will have to pay Missouri a buyout of $800,000 per Dave Matter of St. Louis Today.
Per the report, Rhoades contract contained a $1 million as part of his five-year contract. The amount decreased by $200,000 each year. Rhoades was paid $600,000 by Missouri during his 14 months of employment at the university.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Rhoades would leave Missouri to take the job as Baylor’s Athletic Director. The Baylor job became open after the school’s former athletic director Ian McCaw resigned due to the school’s handling of sexual assault cases.
During Rhoades time at Missouri, the football team went on protest, longtime head coach Gary Pinkel stepped down due to health issues, the basketball team received a postseason ban, the baseball coach resigned and the softball team became involved in a controversy.
Missouri named Wren Baker as the school’s interim athletic director.
