    Billick- Contract Ext. Longer than 1 Year



    From PFT:

    BILLICK DISPUTES CONTRACT REPORT

    Ravens coach Brian Billick disagrees with a recent report from the Baltimore Sun that his recent contract extension with the team was a one-year deal worth $5.4 million. Under those terms, Billick would be signed through 2008 only.

    "None of it's correct," Billick said Thursday night.

    Though Billick wouldn't reveal the details, he called the contract a "substantial commitment" that "[a]bsolutely" extends beyond the 2008 season.

    The Sun says that the Ravens, Raiders, and Patriots are the only three teams who keep quiet the basic terms of their coaches' contracts.

    "We don't ever want my contract to be an issue for the organization or the players," Billick said. "It's best for the team for it not to be an issue."

    I think this is good news. I like Billick and the strides this team made once he took over the playcalling were great. The stability should lead to continued success.

    After listening to what Steve B. said on Tuesday, it seemed to me that the contract would've been more than a 1 year extension.

    Not the first time the Sun messes up.

    Won't be the last.

    Glad to see Billick get a long term deal.

    I'm shocked, SHOCKED, to see that the Scum paper was wrong again.

    This is good news. The longer Billick is here, the better. He's a very good, as his record indicates, and it's unlikely we'd be able to get a better one. It's good to see long-tenured coaches in this league

    The Baltimore Sun and Kyle Boller have something in common: no accuracy.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    This is not surprising at all. What was more surprising was the report of one year, which at the time struck me as strange. It was why I started this thread. I knew something was odd. . .
    Festivus

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    makes sense, I like the idea of not disclosing contract terms that way there isn't any of this "taking control for his job" idea unless they're really flat out horrifically underachieving
