If I'm not mistaken, the average AAC school gets over $5 million per year in TV money. CUSA schools get around $500k. The AAC deal may go down some after the realignment but it'll still be better that the CUSA deal. Can any of that extra money be given to the basketball salary pool?

AAC media money would give us more to work with.

 

No doubt it will help, but with a bigger conference comes bigger spending(at least if you want to be successful.) Higher athletics salaries, bigger and better facilities upgrades, bigger budgets. We spend 40m now, so 5m in payout isn't as much if you want to be spending 60-70m. That's what schools like UCF, Cincy, Memphis, and Houston do, and that's what it takes to be successful at a national level. 

I don't know how those schools do it, if it's from donors/fees/state funds/etc.

Part of our AD responsibilities is alumni engagement/involvement.   Few schools (I'm thinking Florida schools and Houston) can come close to enrollment/graduation figures.

Historically, we can be better.  Get our number$ up.  Winning, and winning long term, helps a ton.

After doing some research, this is what I got:

 

Coach Mac: $600k base, $800k total with incentives

UAB Andy Kennedy: $725k base (contract renewed last year), 

LA Tech Eric Konkol: $400k base

MTSU Nick McDevitt: $575k base, $750k total with incentives

WKU Rick Stansbury: $720k base (was $800k before Covid cuts)

 

Coach Mac is near the top of the conference as far as base and incentives. I think bumping him up to about $800k base to keep him at the very top of our conference would suffice, and with incentives would give him a million dollar annual contract IMHO

He needs p5 money,  because he's about to get those types of offers.  Pay the goof coaches!

BTW….A huge applause and thank you to Dave Anderson @flyonthewall and the NT Alumni Association for the great pregame party.  
Y’all knocked it out of the park!

Well said. That subject even deserves it's own thread.
