    Register: Small note on McDermott's contract

    Randy Peterson just updated his blog. At the bottom, he gives out a small tidbit regarding a change in Coach McDermott's contract last year. According to Peterson, McDermott took a 25 K pay cut to give to his staff.

    Now I know that the odds are sort of against us in the conference tourney, but that's a really small bonus for a pretty decent accomplishment.

    And how dare he take a pay cut just so his assistants can make more money?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Register: Small note on McDermott's contract

    Do you mean to imply something with this info? I come up with nothing jaw dropping from this except Mac was willing to give up money to keep assistants happy.

    Are you possibly implying Mac may be willing to take a pay cut in the future?


    It's all snark from here on out

    I'll be shocked if all the staff is in tact if GMac stays.

    Not sure there is a single person who wishes that he would not succeed. There are just a lot of people who think there is no chance in hell it happens.

    Mac is a good guy, there is no denying that...but there are alot of nice guys out there that can't coach basketball. I consider myself a nice guy...but I can't coach basketball. I wish him all the best, but we need to find someone that can win here.

    Yeah... fantastic... he took a less then 5% pay cut when he is earning around $57,000 per win? Yikes.

    He gave up money to assistants because bb camp attendance has been off, and revenue from camp usually goes to them.
    Speaking of which - bb camp enrollees will be even lower this summer if Gmac stays...

    I disagree.

    When there have been multiple people coming on this message board saying that they hope the Cyclones lose every remaining game so that McDermott will get canned, I have a hard time seeing that as wishing he would succeed.

    When one quarter of responders on a poll on this site say that even if this team were to catch lightning in a bottle and reach the final four he should be fired; that is not wishing him success. Heck, last I checked 20% said if he won the National Championship this year he should be canned.

    (Again, I am not saying that there is any chance of this happening, but that is not what the poll asked.)


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldnít get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
