Lost in all the unabashed joy regarding the needed coaching changes was the role of "headmaster" T.K. Wetherell. Wetherell who insists that he was only involved in negotiations to the extent of finding the money wanted to make sure his assistant coaches weren’t being paid more in base salary than his academic deans. He clearly had a bigger role than most presidents might in the recent hires. This illustrates the clash between the academic side and the athletic side of the university. It should be noted however that FSU did not prostitute itself as Bama did in its recent hiring of Nick Saban.
