it's very common for assistants to stay until the new staff comes in. the barn assistants are getting paid until june and have an obligation to stay and do their jobs.
Obligation or Option? lol

He does. What about troopa screams good coach. Retain him?
I agree. If he is off the recruiting trail, then how, exactly, is he going to keep the class together? What is he telling these player's parents when they ask him why he hasn't been on the trail?
they are getting paid, so obligation. it's a "professionalism" issue.
Barner logic. Keep a coach who is currently not allowed to recruit because of NCAA infractions.
Gotcha.. Now I know he's gone because professionalism and Trooper are not synonymous. Hehe, couldn't resist.
Yup...as the poster above says: He's got Auburn by the 'nads for a LONG time. He'll go on his own terms, and will never have to work again when he does.

I see your point. But there's no way a good coach will retain that guy! He's the main reason that the NCAA is there in the 1st place. JMO
Well, if Trooper Taylor is staying, then the Aubs are hiring Gus M.
Their only goal is to keep the signing class from falling apart. To do this they must retain Troop and use Lightfoot et al to raise as much hell w/ the NCAA to keep the looming NOA from going public prior to collecting signatures in February. This is the Barner M.O. It worked before so why not try it again? They will pay Lightfoot another million before this ends badly.
this is why he will always be on AU's payroll
If retaining Trooper is not pushed, or even forced, on the next coach I will be shocked. Trooper is the perfect description of what it means to be an "awbren man". If anyone thinks this new coaching hire is going to lead the barn program down the path of cleanliness they are sadly mistaken, even with sanctions looming large. barn will continue to run a dirty program, always and forever. They cannot compete without it and it's all they know.

You can not fix stupid that is why the barn will sux for a long time.
