According to a university official, the nine coaches departing as a result of the recently announced sports cuts were all signed to one-year contracts.
The athletics department is not commenting on financial specifics involved in those deals. Third-year baseball coach Ryan Wheeler said that, to his knowledge, none of the departing staff will receive severance packages. Gavin White, who has been with the university for 34 seasons as head coach for men’s crew, said he will not receive a package. White said he is signed to a one-year deal like the other coaches.
The official said that the exception to the one-year contracts are for the revenue sports at Temple, basketball and football.
