No. Same salary. He wasn't "fired" per se. He was relieved of his functions as coach. I'm not totally sure how it works, but he probably had to accept another position in the Habs organization in order to touch the rest of his salary. Legally speaking, if he didn't accept, he would only be permitted to touch a portion of his salary. The Habs could essentially repudiate the contract by saying that Jacques has a duty to mitigate his damages and find another job elsewhere. Of course he would probably not be able to find a job making $4M a year or whatever ridiculous number he's making so the Habs would have to pay him his salary minus what he could potentially get elsewhere.
