Considering he's the 2nd best coach on that list, I don't like him being the least paid
Where will he rank once the new salary kicks in. Or has it already?
Izzo should be getting paid a lot more.
Coach K's increase from last year is about as much as Travis Ford (14th highest paid) made total. Insane.
Think even w/ next year's raise included he would be ~#18
Keep in mind that Hoiberg's new deal will have him averaging $2.6 mil with $26 mil guaranteed. Outside of Self, is anyone else guaranteed that amount of money?
Give him another raise!
He's in the top 10 for next year.
If I'm T. Boone Pickens and OSU I'm demanding a refund.
Steve Kerr just signed a 5 year, 25 million dollar contract to be the next head coach of the Golden State Warriors. He has little to no coaching experience. What kind of contract would the NBA pay a guy like Fred Hoiberg? If ISU wants to keep Hoiberg around forever, they're going to have to increase his average pay a lot.
Plenty of coaches stay with a team even though they could make more somewhere else.
Hoiberg has rather limited experience as a head coach! :wink:
Yep - his raise pretty much adds +600K to his tiered contract if I understand correctly.
So that 1.6 is now more like 2.2
You point is valid - but...
How far does 5 million go in Oakland/San Francisco (or LA, Chicago, NY, Boston) versus how far 2.2 (increasing a million a year over the next 8 IIRC) goes in Ames/Des Moines?
I'd guess if he makes a tourney run into or beyond the Sweet 16, he'll see yet another bump (proly not as much) but likely another 2-4 years on that contract. which would put another 5-10 million in his pocket. All the while with a paltry NBA buyout to keep his options open.
Pretty good deal for him IMO
Who would you take as your head coach?
1. Fred Hoiberg at $2,200,000.
2. Johnny Orr at $235,000 (which $40,000 converted from 1980 to 2014 equivalence).
Imagine the assistant coaches you could hire with the extra $1,965,000.
Fred every day and twice on game days.
I like your line of reasoning, but an extra $2.8 million/year easily covers the cost of living increase.
If CFH chases the money, we can't stop him. If he wants the challenge, we can't stop him. It really comes down to whether we want to spend our time enjoying the ride or worrying about what happens when the ride stops.
I think building a legacy at ISU is a bigger and better challenge than being the next NBA coach on the hot seat. Guys like Coach K, Izzo, and Self could certainly give the NBA a try yet they choose not to. I see no reason why Fred wouldn't choose the same path.
