    sadler to KU

    http://www.omaha.com/article/2012061...-of-operations

    Former Nebraska basketball coach Doc Sadler is expected to soon be named director of basketball operations at Kansas University, according to a newspaper report.
    Sources told the Lawrence Journal-World on Tuesday that Sadler, who has been on campus this week to interview with KU Coach Bill Self, has been offered the job. It's believed he has accepted or will accept and replace Barry Hinson as KU's director of basketball operations.

    Good luck, Doc. Glad he landed at a place that takes basketball seriously, and will learn from one of the best!

    Good luck to Doc. I hope he has a long tenure in Lawrence.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    So KU pays him 150,000 but we still pay him about 400,000 ?

    Me thinks we don't have to feel sorry for Doc anymore!

    He will probably make more than 150k per year, just based on his experiences and the overall knowledge he can bring to the table, at least I would hope he would make more than that, Im pretty sure thats about what our asst a.d. makes the kansas bb program makes enuf to pay him that.

    Director of basketball ops is not a high paying job but I know Barry Hinson who was let go at SMS had this job last year and parlayed it into another head coaching job at SIU. My guess is since this is not a "coaching" job per se that Nebraska will still have to pay Doc (as others have stated in this thread).
