    I assume these positions can't go out and recruit but they could probably meet with kids on campus correct? Seems like Joel could help with recruiting in Iowa and Kyle could help with Ohio - not that the staff isn't doing a great job in recruiting already.

    I went bare knuckles with one of my coaches (assistant) at Iowa State once. It didn't work out well, for either of us.

    Probably around $50K +/- for that position. Houston was making 50K before his upgrade to a coach and others that have been around a year or two are at 55K.

    The Register reported 30k but I’m wondering if that’s for half a year?

    That seems very low for that position but 30K could be since they are green, the University Fiscal Year is July 1 - June 30.

    I think that's annual salary but they get thrown some extra income from camps, etc.

    I would purely speculate that they are "an assistant to an assistant." This is an excellent "perk" to the assistant coaches as it frees them up a tad and can get a quick briefing before they dive into their job and can be home a few extra hours at night.

    This isnt normal at all. This is reserved for highly intelligent athletes who have their coaches full trust. Only other time I recall this happening at Iowa State is I believe Hoiberg did it with Bryan Peterson. Petersen went from this roll at Iowa State to head coach at Kirkwood. He won 2 junior college national championships at Kirkwood and recently cashed in to become the assistant coach at South Dakota State. My guess is in about 3 years or if he continues being successful he will get his chance to take another step up the ladder.

    Also, something no one has mentioned. I believe both Kempt and Lanning are either engaged or married. Obviously their spouse supports this and obviously their spouse has household income as well. If they get $30K a year it isnt ideal but toss in your spouses income and you wont starve as long as both you and your spouse know your time is coming.

    Interesting how that speculation faded away during Lanning's career.

    I heard that, as a child, Joel Lanning once went swimming with his family at Saylorville Lake. While swimming, Joel was bitten by a poisonous snake.

    After 5 days of excruciating pain....the snake died.
