Geno Ford was named men’s basketball coach at Bradley University tonight.
The whirlwind romance moved fast.
Ford told the Record-Courier he was about to board a flight for Peoria, Ill. where the Bradley campus is located. At that time, Ford said he did not have a contract offer.
The Cessna Citation left Akron Fulton Airport at 6:58 p.m.
Within 2 1/2 hours, Ford’s face was on the Bradley University website, introducing him as the Braves new head coach.
Hard for Ford to turn down the offer.
I just confirmed he will make $700,000 in annual base salary, but with reachable incentives, it could be worth more than $900,000.
