The best coaching move of the offseason

Jon Tenuta has signed a new 3 year extension, basically guarenteeing that he will not be taking a "lateral" move for another co-ordinator spot. Tenuta will make just over $1.2 million over the life of the extension, making him again one of the highest paid co-ordinators in the country.

Tenuta is obviously the most important cog in the GT coaching staff, and it is nice to see him locked up for the time being. He will still probably interview for open head coaching positions, but this move was basically done to prevent anything like the rumored move to Michigan from occuring. I honestly don't know how much of a shot Tenuta will ever get at a major conference HC position unless it's at Tech itself - he isn't the smoothest guy in the world with the press, and has a bit of a reputation as a mad scientist and he's starting to get up in years a bit. If that keeps him cranking out top 25 defenses with lightly regarded recruiting classes on The Flats, then I'm all for it.
