    Let me help you. Follow these instructions:

    1. Read his contract
    2. Peruse the ISU athletics budget
    3. Do simple math.

    He’s not going anywhere anytime soon unless he wants to. Especially since some of the biggest donors to the program (and ISU athletics) are personal friends of his.
    For anyone questioning Hooper on this, he's 100% right. It would cost roughly $750k to buy him out after this season, or roughly 42% of the last public basketball budget. Not happening. Seat is cooooooold... Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. The only time you could see him exit early is if he left for another job or if one of you cuts a VERY large check. Here is what remains on Lansing's contract:

    2017-2018 - $242,980 - $743,340 buyout
    2018-2019 - $247,780 - $505,160 buyout
    2019-2020 - $252,580 - $257,380 buyout
    2020-2021 - $257,380

    If you're a Sycamore basketball fan, your hope is that Lansing can turn the program back into a consistent winner. Otherwise, we'll likely have a new coach in 2021.

    Pulling this post out of the game thread it was originally put in since people keep asking about Lansing's contract here and on social media as well as people keep beating the drum wanting Lansing fired.

    As of right now, 3/14/2018, it would cost $743,340 to buy out the final 3 years of Lansing's deal. If you've got 3/4 of a milly laying around and feel that strongly about it, make it happen.

    Otherwise, let it rest. No mentally stable individual would walk away from that kind of cash. You know you damn well wouldn't even if you went 0-30. If you say you would, you're A) a damned liar and/or B) a mental midget.

    I used to be full bore buy out Coach Losing, but the more I thought about it after this thread, leave home there the last two years. If he chokes again this coming year then that gives ISU a full year or two to watch some of the up and coming coaches to evaluate who can turn the ship. One I find interesting that should be making a head coaching jump just about the time Losings contract is up is Luke Murrry. Not just because his father is Bill Murray and that in itself would put people in the seats if he is attending games like he has everywhere Luke has been, but Luke has been the go to recruiter for Mack at Xavier and now Louisville. In two more years under Mack he should be seasoned and ready for that head coaching job he can mak an impact in. He will have a great core of players that are now fresh and soph that will be jr and srs Then. I would be curious to see who else everyone thinks could be prime for that jump to head coach. Jason maybe you want to move this and make a separate thread.

    Personally, I'm hoping that GL just starts winning. It's lots more fun...

    Hell yes, we should all be happy if that pan’s out.TREEFAN’s spot on, as I think many of you are. We’d obviously save a crapload of money on buyout money, additional experience is totally beneficial for GL, a good corps of recruits hopefully pan out as promised, ISU is actually a POSITIVE ASSET in recruiting now and don’t forget that the field house is getting a $45M makeover. I think most of you could sleep at night with that prognosis, right???

    B-20, we certainly do not have an exclusive on that LOSS of money sitting where we are in collegiate athletics in general and even our conference. I sure would rather be Indiana State than SIU right now, ISUR even, BSU or even worse yet, Evansville.

    How so? I'd much rather be in Illinois State's position. Do you realize their last losing season was in 2006-2007?

    Bradley and Evansville are private and putting money toward the programs, so not sure they're worse off.
