I think we've mentioned before too that the current basketball staff is on a value plan. It's not really worth comparing basketball coaches salaries right now if we don't acknowledge that they are being paid less than usual.

I know basketball is our top sport, but the salaries currently do not reflect that.

I will chalk it up mostly to a difference in the way schools budget and you can add a 1/3 just for benefits. That extra 1/3 is never reported on each coach but it is in the total cost. Some schools might be reporting benefits in the general fund because most coaches/staff are considered state employees. Some might be listing that cost under basketball....when they report.

It's also why reducing the number of staff is going to be the easiest way to reduce our budgets. It's easy to talk about travel expenses needing to be reduced. But even if you go to playing all regional games in all sports....

you still only going to cut $500,000 or so

It would still be nice to have an extra half a million for athletics.

If that's the case you must want Western back in the OVC or at the very least schedule all OOC games vs the OVC.

Boy that sounds great to me....just the thing needed to jump start me into writing a $1,400 check for 2 basketball tickets

there are easier and better ways to cut cost
