Wow, I figured it would be lower than Mile's but not 1/2. How low is the assistance salaaries?
I think the assistants are going to be doing well in regards to assistant coaches in the college baseball world. Erstad was given a pool of money to work with for salaries. I suspect he took small chunk of the money for his salary (he doesn't really need a big salary at this point) and used the rest to draw in two high quality, well regarded assistants.

"I just said to Darin, 'Here's so much money and you split it up as you see fit -- keep as much of that pool or give it to your assistants,' " Osborne said. "I knew he would allocate it wisely. And he has."

That explains it thanks. I guess I missed that quote by Osborne or forgot about it.

I realize that 160G isn't chump change, but I just keep thinking of the phrase "For the Love of the Game".:D
