(Undated) -- Yahoo's former chief operating officer is making a very comfortable landing after getting tossed out only 15 months after he was hired. Yahoo announced Wednesday that Henrique de Castro's severance package will pay him nearly 58-million dollars. All but one-million comes from the big jump in Yahoo's stock price. De Castro was a top sales executive with Google when Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer hired him to revive the struggling Internet brand's advertising. Mayer fired de Castro in January.
