Jim Valvano and North Carolina State remain at odds over the financial terms on which he will leave as head basketball coach. University counsel Becky French said that if Valvano refuses the school's offer of $106,000--a year's base salary--to leave after this season, then he can remain as coach for the 1990-91 season. Art Kaminsky, Valvano's agent, said the coach wants to be paid $500,000. Valvano has three years remaining on his contract. The university will not agree to Kaminsky's terms.
