In that case, almost no football coach would ever be fired, because they nearly always have "rolling contracts" that automatically extend themselves for recruiting purposes.

What this sounds like is Pernetti wanted to fire Rice "for cause", to try to get out of paying Rice the rest of his salary, by saying Rice breached his contract somehow with his behavior, but was unwilling to fire Rice and keep paying him.
