Changing the Culture of UA Football Following Rodriguez's Firing

A conversation with columnist Greg Hansen about multimillion dollar contracts and the culture of UA Athletics.

The University of Arizona wants to pay new head football coach Kevin Sumlin $14.5 million, spread across the next five years. A final contract, which is still being finalized, would need approval from the Arizona Board of Regents. The regents called for a review of multi-year athletic coach contracts after former head coach Rich Rodriguez's firing earlier this month.

Arizona Daily Star sports columnist Greg Hansen talks about why Sumlin's contract will likely get the regents' approval and how his hiring could change the culture of the UA Athletics Department.
