Akron is now taking care of its soccer coach how it should.
Starting January 1, Caleb Porter will receive an extra $100K in salary and $800 per month for a vehicle.
The new agreement provides some security to ensure Porter remains in blue and gold. Akron will pay $15,000 per year into an escrow account, which will be dumped into Porter's possession if Porter stays through February 28, 2021. Porter also must pay $200,000 if he leaves in the next three years, and $150,000 if he leaves prematurely in any year after that.
