Money and power: Must be college sports
Oklahoma State had plenty of money to offer its next men’s basketball coach.
But the Cowboys might have been a little short on one other commodity.
Watch my latest video commentary or read below:
The past week has been quite a time for Travis Ford.
Quite a profitable time, that is.
He didn’t just get one raise. He got two.It was just last week that the men’s basketball coach negotiated a new contract at UMass. Then, of course, on Wednesday, he agreed to become the new coach at Oklahoma State. Though we don’t have all the details just yet, the Cowboys have surely upped the ante on Ford’s $400,000 salary.
College coaches everywhere are envious. Anyone who can get two raises in one week is genius. College coaches love their big paychecks.
About the only thing that comes close to being more important than money is power. College coaches want to rule the roost. They may have a boss, but there are plenty of places where the person with the most power does not have his name on the door to the athletic director’s office.
