CMU-Zeigler Talking 4-year Deal

Central Michigan University and men's basketball coach Ernie Zeigler are in discussion on a new 4-year contract that would begin in the 2010-11 season, sources close to the situation tell me.
The deal would wipe out the year left on his current contract and begin immediately for next season. There are hopes that the deal will be finalized and signed early next week.
The deal is believed to have about a $15,000 increase in guaranteed money per-year and would give Zeigler the four year stability that he is looking for with the program.
The four years could also be a number that would allow CMU to show Ernie's son, Trey, that his father would be in place as the head coach of the Chippewas throughout his college playing days.
I will post more updates as I hear them.

I do not think this is smart deal for the Chippewas. There is a lot behind the curtain just like OZ.
