K.C. STAR OBTAINS TAX FORMS DETAILING CEDRIC DEMPSEY'S PAY
Published June 23, 1998
Federal tax forms obtained by the K.C. STAR show that NCAA Exec Dir Cedric Dempsey's total compensation increased by more than $150,000 in one year, bringing Dempsey's total compensation for the FY ending August 31, '97 -- including benefits, deferred compensation and taxable expenses -- to $647,332, according to Steve Rock of the K.C. STAR. Former NCAA President Gene Corrigan, who determined Dempsey's salary hike along with NCAA Exec Committee Chair Sam Smith: "We both said at the time, 'We may be criticized for this.' It was a pretty sizable jump. But it was the right thing to do. We didn't want (Dempsey) to have any temptations to go after anything else" (K.C. STAR, 6/23).
