I think that in exchange for our pick or whatever agreed-upon considerations, they just mutually reach an agreement with Bud to terminate his contract. Technically you cannot "trade" a pick for a coach, so they do it as two separate transactions, where we trade them our first round pick for a heavily protected 2nd-rounder or something that will never really convey, or cash considerations, or something like that.
