  • NEUHEIS IN COACHING SALARIES: UW COACH CONTRACT DETAILS

              Univ. of WA football coach Rick Neuheisel is still
         having his contract "negotiated, but some details are
         emerging," according to Marsha King of the SEATTLE TIMES. 
         Neuheisel will receive a $195,000 base salary, the use of a
         donated car valued at $20,000 and the purchase of a $100,000
         "retirement annuity for each of the next five years."  Other
         "benefits" could include "family-travel and car-operating
         allowances and country-club dues," as well as the "payoff of
         the $800,000-plus mortgage" on his CO home.  The remaining
         $300,000 to $400,000 of his pay will "be provided by outside
         interests," including Nike, which is "expected to pitch in
         $100,000 ... the same arrangement it's believed the company
         had" with Neuheisel while he was at the Univ. of CO.  Around
         half of Neuheisel's deal will come from AD revenues.  King
         wrote that the average salary for all levels of UW
         professors is $63,124 (SEATTLE TIMES, 1/13).

  • NEWS AND NOTES FROM THE NCAA CONVENTION IN SAN ANTONIO

              In San Antonio, Tim Griffin reports that the NCAA has
         "granted initial certification" to the proposed Mardi Gras
         Bowl, which would be played in Mobile, AL, and could begin
         in December.  ESPN analyst Mike Gottfried has served as the
         leader for the city in dealing with the NCAA and said that
         he's "discussing a title sponsorship with the city of Mobile
         of the game."  If certification is granted during the April
         26-28 NCAA meeting in Dallas, the game would be televised on
         ESPN....The NCAA will "sell its controversial jet" as part
         of its plan to save $23M in "cost avoidance and revenue
         enhancements."  The jet was bought for $1.7M in '88, but
         could be sold for "more than" $2.8M (EXPRESS-NEWS, 1/13).
