    Holy Crap - Lew Perkins Compensation

    KC Star has an article that KU AD Lew Perkins was compensated $4.4 MILLION last year. Wow, what an ungodly stupid amount. Apparently, when Iowa was interested in him, he renegotiated a $2.5 million retainage bonus, and it had to be NET of all taxes.

    KU has a great MBB revenue stream, but after firing Mangino, they better hope Gill can get it done. After all the money they have spent on facilities and salaries, they will be in some hurt if FB revenues start dropping off.

    With the ticket scandal going on, I think there is something fishy in Lawrence.


    KU athletic director earned $4 million in pay last year, likely tops in nation - KansasCity.com

    That is a huge amount. I've always been under the impression that most athletic directors don't even make over 1 million.

    good work if you can get it. During Perkins tenure, kansas has had their football and basketball programs under probation and now the FBI and the IRS are investigating a possible ticket scalping scheme involving the jayhawk athletic department.

    I wonder if Bernie Madoff is one of Lew Perkins heroes!

    yeah... found this link from a year ago (so a little out of date) but still, most dont make even over 500-600k..

    Granted this is for 2008, and it only includes public schools. But here's a top 10 list
