UNLV Rebels head coach T.J. Otzelberger instructs the team in the first half of a college basketball game against the Cincinnati Bearcats, Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019, at Fifth Third Arena in Cincinnati.
The details on contracts for Iowa State’s first men’s basketball coaching staff under T.J. Otzelberger are here.
Longtime Cyclone assistant Daniyal Robinson will be paid $325,000 for the 2021-22 season, as first reported by The Des Moines Register‘s Travis Hines. Robinson, who was on previous head coach Steve Prohm’s staff since 2015, was paid $285,000 last season, a year in which the Cyclones went 2-22 overall, 0-18 in Big 12 play and ended in Prohm’s firing.
Robinson will unsurprisingly be the highest-paid member of Otzelberger’s first staff, and he’s been crucial in Iowa State’s recruiting efforts during his tenure, having acted as the lead recruiter on high-profile players such as Tyrese Haliburton, Talen Horton-Tucker and Xavier Foster.
Kyle Green will be paid $300,000 during his first season with the program after a successful stint as an assistant under Ben Jacobson at Northern Iowa. He was paid nearly $140,000 last season at UNI, according to The Register.
The final member of the staff, JR Blount, will be paid $275,000, which is an increase for the low member on the totem pole from Prohm’s staff, James Kane, who was paid $265,000 last year.
Details of Otzelberger’s contract remain unknown at this time.
