Yeah, but Nebraska is a volleyball school.For sure one of the highest paid women's college volleyball coaches in America. (Penn State is not on this list: https://www.flovolleyball.tv/articles/6085675-what-trends-exist-in-power-five-coaching-salaries )
But worth every penny.
Tim Miles is going to earn $2.375 million this year and can’t win a game in the NIT in 17/18 and John Cook gets a $75,000 raise for winning his 2nd National Championship in 3 years. Makes perfect sense. I know that the sports are different but Nebraska Volleyball is an elite program and Men’s Basketball is something that takes up several nights at Pinnacle Bank Arena to help pay off the arena.That's all? If any coach deserves a substantial raise, it is him.
Agreed that men's basketball is a revenue generating sport and coaches salaries will be substantially higher, the proverbial apples to oranges comparison. But what about other women's sports, such as, basketball. Dawn Staley is South Carolina's women's basketball coach and she is set to receive a salary of 2 million a year. She has one national title to her name. South Carolina fans do support their women's basketball program well and draw an average of 10,000 fans per game. The revenue they generate is nearly 3 million, which is among the best in the nation for that sport, but they still lose around one million a year due to expenses.You can complain about TM's salary, but JC's and TM's salries are based on two different pay scales.
TM's is based on P5 Head BB coaches, and is relative to all those.
JC's is based on P5 Head VB coaches, and is relative to all those.
