It will be interesting to see whether other schools follow suit. If Mark Helfrich wins the Pac-12 at Oregon this year, would he be offered a small stake of Nike in lieu of more up-front cash?

Pastner probably wouldn't get a crack at his alma mater, because Miller has 175,000 reasons to stay that could grow more valuable with each passing year.
