Keep Burke or not if it was your choice?

It seems obvious to me that Burke is in place for this season. The team's under new ownership and I'd expect the to review his status after it's over, when he has one year remaining on his contract. There is no reason on earth for them to either rush to replace him or to consider extending him before that.
I'd argue that for ownership, Burke's contract situation right now is ideal. They can take this season to make the transition into their new ownership structure, whatever that may, be and still be in a position to evaluate Burke with a full year left on his contract. They control him but aren't on the hook for years of future payments if they decide to replace him. If they decide to keep him they're in a position to extend him well before he hits the open market.
