This guy got a $58m severance package for 15 months on the job!

Pot Of Gold

That's around $127,000 a day!

Former chief operating officer Henrique de Castro left Yahoo with an severance package worth $58m, according to a regulatory document filed Wednesday with the SEC.

CNN Money reports that the golden parachute is among the most generous in history, and especially notable given than de Castro worked at Yahoo for only 15 months.

De Castro was shown the door in January by CEO Marissa Mayer, apparently due to disappointing performance in improving Yahoo's advertising revenue.

Mayer and de Castro - two former Google executives - were under tremendous pressure to revive Yahoo's battered core business. Somewhere along the line, Mayer decided that de Castro was not a good fit for the job.
