Phil Knight, Nike and well heeled Ducks

Reportedly the University of Oregon wants to offer Michigan State coach Tom Izzo a contract worth somewhere north of $32 million dollars over multiple years to become their next basketball coach.

Yes, Tom Izzo.

Heck, why not Mike Krzyzewski? Jim Calhoun? Roy Williams?

How freaking ridiculous is this? Izzo is no John Calipari folks.

UPDATE: It is so ridiculous that coach Izzo had to take time out of preparing his team against Butler in the Final Four to deny being interested.
