After bowling in his first season at Charlotte, Healy’s team never gain traction and ends his tenure at Charlotte with a 15-25 overall record, going 10-14 in C-USA play, dropping the only bowl appearance to Buffalo.
Charlotte will owe Will Healy around $1.5 million to exit the deal, however there is an offset clause, anything Healy earns reduces what Charlotte owes.
I’ll be working on a piece with who I feel could be coaching candidates over the next day or so. Stay tuned, Niner Nation.
