    Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    I am a big PR fan and think he is a great fit for the program. I think he is making progress and is a guy that is easy to like and route for....

    But I also am hoping the best is yet to come. I can pick out a few key games each of the last three years that gives me hope. On the flip side I can pick out a few games each year where ISU has gotten torched and part of that torching comes from ISU losing combined with more talented team winning.

    if you put his resume down on paper and take the name and emotions out of it. strong experience as assistant, lots of intangibles that I would think any school would want. Bowl game 2 out of 3 years, 3 years head coach, a few stake in the ground wins.

    Flip side..finishing towards bottom of the league in recruiting and results. lost to IA 2 out of 3 years. Team still a bit weak on turnovers and penalties during tenure.

    I think this is accurate....1-1 against nebrasks, 1 and 2 against tx, winless against missouri, kstate, a and m baylor, 2-1 against tx teck I think. winless against OU. 1 and 2 against o state. 1-2 against iowa. not sure on his head coaching record without looking but I am guessing just slightly under 500.

    I guess their is an argument to give him a raise regardless of if others want him or not and I would guess he is on track for whatever goals he and JP set out...but what is your expectation for the next 2 years if we give him a raise? better than 500 each year? 8 wins? 9 wins?

    also who in the big 12 should he be paid more than? Kansas? Baylor? tech? I would say he is worth more to ISU than another team so really comes down to what can ISU afford, when and what does PR think is a fair value.

    Re: Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    Rhoads has to want it first. All indications are CPR turned down a pay raise last offseason in favor of JP using that money to upgrade facilities.

    Re: Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    A BIG raise, I can see your point. But the guy deserves to be better than the last amongst Big 12 coaching salaries, so he deserves a raise of some sort.

    Fans in the stands is also a huge part of this. Yes, CPR and his staff deserve a raise.

    Smart move.

    Re: Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    He deserves, but does everybody really feel a raise can keep a coach?? Contracts and raises don't mean anything, except when they get fired.

    Re: Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    I too think Rhoads wants the money put into facilities, and hopefully assistant salaries.

    With that said, I would be surprised if he didn't get a raise and extension to around 1.5 million per year.

    First of all, please stop yelling, lol.

    Second of all, averaging over 52,000 people does not double revenue; we averaged way more than 26,000/game last year plus thousands of the tickets sold for the last 2 games this year were at low promotional ticket prices.

    However, yes, an increase in revenue.

    Re: Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    After three seasons, he's a .500 coach with a couple big wins and a viral youtube video. Good stuff but a BIG raise seems premature.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    I don't think a raise can keep a coach but it can help make him feel valued for the job he is doing. The big thing is hoping he doesn't think the grass is greener somewhere else. I do believe he wants to build a program and I think that is commendable.

    Re: Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    This would be the WRONG time for Iowa State to get cheap. Unfortunately they need to do whatever CPR wants. He has all the leverage. This is why Iowa is never going to fire or put heat on Ferentz even though he's overpaid. They know damn well they are 1 bad hire away from being Minnesota. Losing CPR could send this program back to the mid 90s.

    I'm sure JP will take care of it.

    I would bump his base salary to around 1.5 million/year. Give his assistants a raise. And then have some really nice incentives in the contract based on performance/wins.

    Re: Too soon to give PR a big raise?

    If this happens it will be after this week. JP is not going to bother CPR during game week, even if it is great news that "hey, we're giving you a big chunk of change". If CPR actually interviews this week or sets something up for M or T of next week, we pretty much hosed at that time. A coach, content where they are, will not wreck prep time or season wrap up to interview.

    I see Rhoads, and staff, to get a raise in about week and a half if JP is going to do it. Raising the assistants wages will show a commitment to Rhoads program and most successful coaches seem to have very little turnover in their staff.
