Coach Twit is smart to strike while the iron is hot...probably is BYU
education..After getting thunmped by the tide and a 4th place finish in the MWC
next year..his stock will drop dramatically.
What a great year and a great year to a deserving coach! Great job Dr. Hill for
retaining Coach Witt!!
Glad to see that my tuition dollars are hard at work. No wonder why they jack up
the price every year. Good to know that Kyle is now the highest paid staff
member at the U of U. Even more than all of the doctors,surgeons at the hospital
who actually save lives daily. Not to mention he makes almost four times as much
as the average salary of the professors. I'm glad to see that here in the USA we
have our priorities straight. I love football but the salaries for the coaches
have become a joke.
You are out of line and misinformed. It is the season ticket holders, crimson
club members, and big donors to the U athletic dept that pay the coaches
salaries, not your tuition or state taxes. Check the market place, every head
coach in the SEC makes at least $2 million a year.
WELL TO THINK ABOUT IT THAT WAY IS ONE THING... BUT TO THINK OF IT AS THE
FOOTBALL PROGRAM ACTUALLY IS SELF SUFFICIENT PLUS PAYS FOR 70-80% OF THE OTHER
ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT COSTS SO..... THAT YOUR TUITION (SUBSIDIZED BY ME, A TAX
PAYER) CAN GO TO THE THINGS YOU DEEM WORTHY OF YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY... BY THE
WAY YOUR WELCOME FOR THE EDUCATION..... PEACE
Did you even read the story or have you not taken Reading 101 at the U. yet?
Kyle's salary is only going to be $200k per year out of the U's pocket. The
remaining $1 million will come from sponsors, appearances, TV/radio deals, and
advertising. His $200k base salary is far below many professors, doctors, and
administrators at the U. Your comments embarrass other U. students and grads.
Please don't associate your self with the U. when you make such uninformed
U of U student. Bet you are happy you opened your mouth this mornig.
Besides the article pointed out his base salary is $200k the rest comes from
endorsements and other sources of revenue so even if it did come from the school
budget it is inline with the other professors you reference.
Another successful BYU Graduate.
That turncoat got what he deserves. Benedict Whit should have his BYU degree
taken from him. Remember what happened last year when you started out slow how
quickly the fans turned on you Whit? Benedict will not play out his contract. 3
years tops at the U. Hope the money was worth it, you traitor.
During the first quarter of 2009 over 95,000 businesses will fold and nearly 1.5
million people will be without a job.Carlos Boozer, "I definately
need a raise!"Coach Whit just got a raise to 1.2 million.Nick Saban
earns over 4 million a year.The Yankees payroll will hit over 214 million
next year.Manny Ramirez turned down 21 million per season. What's wrong with our country?
To Priorities Messed Up; it's called the market, baby, get used to it. If you
eliminate excesses in the market you will fundamentally change it and it won't
be worth a damn.I noticed you didn't include any actors in your
list. Most sporting events (at least those that don't involve the Timberwolves)
are more entertaining than the crap Hollywood puts out these days.
Wow...sour grapes. I knew there are fans at BYU who will never get over Coach
Whittingham saying "thanks, but no" to BYU. How delightful. Granted there are some class BYU fans who have wished Coach Whittingham well
as well as the Ute team. Again, you are first class and represent what BYU is
all about.To the individual who wrote the above referenced post, it
must be difficult indeed to have one of your own who would rather beat BYU than
work for them. Wow! That must be hard to deal with. Too bad!
During the first quarter of 2009, over 95,000 businesses will fold and nearly
1.5 million people will be without a job.Brad Pitt makes over 20
million per film.Britney Spears still made over 30 million last year.My original statement is that with so much happening with the economy,
it hasn't seemed to affect the entertainment business and those involved don't
live in our reality. I know it's the market (baby) but it was simply a comment
that our priorities are messed up. You may be one of the people that will be out
of work this next quarter.
Poor fella, still bitter that in your Cougars GREAT 2 years it took lucky plays
to beat a re-building ute program??? Utah loses hardly ANYONE next year genius.
4th place finish??? I see BYU finishing 4th, but it'll be a LONG LONG time
before you see BYU ahead of Utah again.... HEY MAX, THROW IT OVER
Great job KYLE,you coached circles around big mouth Saban,he didnt know what hit
him.KYLE your worth every penny!Your Friend, Steve HeilP.S. Saban should have talked to the Wyoming coach before the game.
