NEUHEIS IN COACHING SALARIES: UW COACH CONTRACT DETAILS
Published January 13, 1999
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).
