I have to think that he has a deal (or deals) already in place and is waiting for Monday to pull the trigger. He could do it sooner but if I were controlling the budget I'd tell him to wait until the last minute before taking on new salary. If that's the case, then Sturm obviously isn't part of the team equation moving forward and Dean decided to take care of that ASAP.

Just speculation of course. We'll know for sure end of day Monday.
