ABC NEWS TO FEATURE MONEY IN COLLEGE COACHING
Published March 9, 1995
UMass Coach John Calipari will be the focus of a four-minute piece on ABC's "World News Tonight" expected to air early during the NCAA basketball tournament. ABC's Armen Keteyian: "The theme of the piece has to do with escalating salaries of major college coaches and whether they are worth what their universities are paying them and the kind of commitment the colleges have made to these coaches. It's a nationwide look, with UMass a huge part of the piece." Reportedly, Calipari makes more than $600,000/year. That includes a base of $132,000; almost 95% of an estimated $300,000 from a summer basketball camp; the school's revenue from one road trip of his choice; $50,000 from season ticket revenue; 35% of NCAA tournament money; and $50,000 per year for a pension fund. Calipari also has outside deals with Nike, Spalding and Champion. Other coaches expected to be mentioned: IU's Bobby Knight, UNC's Dean Smith and Duke's Mike Krzyzewski (Jim Greenidge, BOSTON GLOBE, 3/8).
