OPENING 'DORES: USA TODAY's Berkowitz reported Vanderbilt AD David Williams was credited with more than $1.2M in compensation during the '11 calendar year, placing him "among the nation’s five highest-paid ADs." Vanderbilt football coach James Franklin, hired in December '10, was credited with more than $1.8M in compensation for '11, including more than $1.5M "in base pay." Franklin’s total '11 compensation of $1,842,771 is "more than $250,000 greater than" former Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson’s total for '10 (USATODAY.com, 5/18).
STEEL RESERVE: In Pittsburgh, Bill Schackner reported Univ. of Pittsburgh men's basketball coach Jamie Dixon received a pay increase of $615,506, representing "more than the total annual compensation of all but a handful of Pitt employees." The 34% raise pushed Dixon's "total earnings above" $2.4M. Four of the five highest paid officers at Pitt were in athletics. The second highest earner at Pitt last year "was former head football coach Todd Graham at $1,982,793" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 5/18).
