DO YOU MAKE WHAT THEY MAKE? IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME, AT UNC
Published December 19, 1997
UNC officials released financial terms of personal- services contracts between Nike and six of the school's coaches on Thursday, and Steve Elling of the Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER writes "the figures are impressive." UNC stands to earn $11.1M over its five-year deal with Nike. Men's basketball coach Bill Guthridge and new football coach Carl Torbush have not begun negotiations with Nike yet, but women's soccer coach Anson Dorrance will earn $80,000 from Nike in '98, after Dorrance's $22,000-per year deal with adidas ends at the end of the year (NEWS & OBSERVER, 12/19).
