    Big12 ADs are highest paid in FBS

    and our own Jamie Pollard ranks 5th in the Big 12

    I came across some interesting figures that the Bloomberg News Service compiled earlier this year about salaries for athletic directors at FBS schools (hat tip to Brett McMurphy of the Tampa Tribune).

    The most interesting nugget I found in the story was that Big 12 athletic directors are the top paid of any conference in the nation.
    The 11 Big 12 athletic directors Bloomberg News Service was able to obtain through filing public records requests with each public university indicated that

    Big 12 athletic directors averaged a salary of $470,783.
    That figure was $29,506 higher than the average salary of the Big Ten's athletic directors, which was $29,506 per school lower.
    Kansas- $900,000
    Oklahoma- $700,000
    A&M- $690,000
    Texas- $627,109
    Iowa State- $378,560
    Ok State- $377,396
    Tech- $365,000
    Colorado- $297,709
    K State- $294,466
    Missouri- $287,375
    Nebraska- $261,000

    Can't believe KU pays that much and Nebraska pays that little.

    That helps feed Osborne's ego. Hey look at me, I work for the least amount of all the Big XII ADs, but it is only because I am a swell guy....

    No this is not a photoshop, but a honest to goodness picture of King Tom.

    +1. Props to you for expecting something.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.
