We have published the year-to-year contracts of Damon Harrington, Cal football head coach Sonny Dykes’ strength and conditioning assistant, who is the central figure in the narrative of Ted Agu’s 2014 death.

Harrington’s current deal expires June 30. Will it be non-renewed, quietly or otherwise?

There is no use asking the University of California-Berkeley for an advance answer to this question; the stock answer is that the campus administration doesn’t comment on “personnel matters.” But on the off-chance that Cal pooh-bahs wish to make a defiant and preemptive announcement that Harrington, with his insane punishment drills in the guise of “mental toughness” exercises, remains their guy, Concussion Inc. is forwarding this article both to the athletic department and to the main spokesperson for embattled Chancellor Nicholas Dirks — on whose watch the campus has plunged into a dire crisis of budget deficits and questions over moral leadership on sexual harassment and big-time sports scandals.

The latest athletic department development barely made a blip: the re-upping of head basketball coach Cuonzo Martin amid serious evidence, according to university sources, that he had violated policy in not reporting harassment allegations against now-departed assistant coach Yann Hufnagel.

Meanwhile, other sources tell us that, within days, further explosive documents will be dropping on the homicidally negligent fantasy violence of Harrington’s strength and conditioning regime. Does the tail still so wag the dog that Chancellor Dirks will keep this goofball on the payroll of California’s taxpayers? Right now it appears that the only thing standing in the way is the turning of the calendar from June 30 to July 1.
