I have no clue if what I am about to state is happening or not.
I don't believe Alvarez will put any conditions on the new HC to keep any of the existing assistants.
I do not know where he stands budget wise.
But the possibility exists that he may have given a guarantee of a bonus or a position in the athletic department to some of the existing staff to encourage them to stick around until the new coach is hired. I doubt he would guarantee them a position on the new HC's staff. If they were not offered a position by the new HC Alvarez would see that they were compensated in some way for the next year if they were unable to obtain a job else where after the new HC is hired.
I have no basis for this conjecture except for a feeling of what I might do If I was in his position. Similar to paying some people to stick around as a business goes thru bankruptcy, liquidation, or a change in ownership.

How about he told them he had a guy all lined up, don't worry about it. You'll know by Thursday the we can all go from their. Golden says no and the whole thing blows up in our face and we get our former GAs plus whoever the D Coordinator from another school can scrounge up on short notice with limited funds.

BUCKNUTS 21 self trolling.
The money that he is getting from coaching the RB should be given out to the coaches. All I heard is that the coaches are the ones that did all the work and are doing all the work now, and Barry is just over seeing it.
The assistants are getting paid, via their contract, through the Rose Bowl. Why pay them more?
That seems fair and intuitive, however businesses commonly give out large raises and bonuses when they are getting bought out to keep the good employees around and make sure everything goes smoothly. The most recent example is the Hostess bankruptcy. It would be chaos if everyone just left. Now football and everyday business is different, but this seems pretty chaotic to me.
It is clear no incoming coach will have to keep any of the coaches....might not be an issue because at this current rate they may all be hired elsewhere.
Additionally, I think it is clear that BA will not be the HC.
Feel bad for the players having to go through all these coaching changes year after year. I am losing faith in Alvarez especially after his first priority was to get himself more money for "managing" the Rose Bowl game. The guy is already the 3rd highest paid AD in the country. Just bad PR considering we underpay our assistant coaches.
The exodus of ACs is rapidly approaching 100% so there will be no issue with whatever new HC BA manages to finally hire being able to hire own staff. I had high hopes for RB. Now looking at a train wreck of lame ducks..
Barry might encourage the new HC to keep some of the staff, but no AD or any employer in their right mind limits a guy's staff. In the business world there might be a caveat where a new hire can't have a criminal record or have any skeletons in their closet, but other than that no, there will be no limits.
Barry will tell the new HC about the staff and try to sell the current staff to the HC, but at the end of the day the new guy will decide.
