Why did a coach I was trying to sign go with another franchise without giving me a chance to increase my offer?
Coaches may sign a competing offer at any time. The further it is from the end of the negotiating period, the higher the likelihood of them letting other suitors know of the change in status so they can increase offers. Furthermore, when a coach gets an offer that is much higher than his other offers, it also increases his likelihood of making a quick signing.
