What does Uconn spend an extra 18 million on?

aprox 1.5MM goes to the bball coach


Calhoun will receive a base salary of $200,000 for the 2004-05 academic year and that amount will increase by $25,000 annually through the contract. In addition to his base salary, Calhoun will receive $1,200,000 in the first year of the contract for institutional public relations commitments, which include speaking engagements and media-related appearances for a total of $1,400,000. These two combined figures will be $1,500,000 for 2005-06, 2006-07 and 2007-08 and will be $1,600,000 in 2008-09 and 2009-10.

Calhoun will also receive compensation for additional services if the UConn team advances to national postseason competition. Calhoun will receive one month of base salary if the Huskies play in the NCAA or NIT tournament  and two months of base salary for an NCAA Final Four appearance.

“We are pleased to announce this new contract for Coach Calhoun, who I consider to be the preeminent coach in men’s college basketball today,†says UConn Director of Athletics Jeff Hathaway. “Coach Calhoun has an extensive record of excellence both in the performance of his teams and in the quality of the young men that have been part of our program. He is a valuable member of the UConn community and the state of Connecticut. We look forward to continued success in the men’s basketball program under Coach Calhoun’s leadership for many years to come.â€Â

“I am very happy that the University is allowing me the opportunity to do what I hope to do, and that is end my career here at UConn, whenever that time may be,†says Calhoun. “With the help and support of Jeff Hathaway and (President) Phil Austin, that is what this new contract allows me to do. It especially pleases me to know that the University has now put me financially in the same class as the other outstanding men’s basketball coaches in America. And, importantly, this commitment allows me and my staff to continue our pursuit of another championship with a renewed show of support from the University.â€Â

so what

we have access to all the talent

our travel expenses to get  the talent has to be one tenth of northern schools that try to mine florida for talent

That said, maybe we should add a few mils to our budget using money from the BE and hire a competent offensive coordinator.  That would probably help, no?

Some of our assistant coaching is very good, some could use upgrades.  Why not bring our budget up to at least average in BE football schools and get some good staffing?  Couldn't hurt.  Im not just talking about football, either.  Strong assistant coaches go a long way to helping most if not all ncaa sports.  We've done a lot with a little.  We should be able to do more with a lot.

Things will start to improve as the revenue from the Big East comes in, but we will remain behind the power curve. The facility was the biggest step in getting up to par (at least for the football team, anyway.) But USF cannot ignore things like coaches salaries when it makes such a big difference on the outcome in revenue-producing sports.
