This. A million upvotes if possible for being so damn accurate.
It was kinda a tongue in cheek comment seeing that Maryland was moving to the B1G. I'm in agreement that we need folks from Maryland running the show and in various levels within the organization.
'08 grad with annual fund experience at UMD, Stanford and now Johns Hopkins. Goterpss wanna get me hired!?
I didn't bother to read this thread. I'm just wondering if anyone made a chicken/egg comparison to our basketball team.
If not, I'll try to craft one.
Yeah it's pretty much lateral move, I think a slight step-up in title. The Pirate Club actually isn't that small, think they raised pretty close to what the TC raises each year (more an indictment of our fundraising in comparison to a non-BCS school).

Only do it if Grevis Vasquez is involved.
However, if the salary is in the same ballpark it's a huge step up. Can probably grab a 4000 square foot house in eastern Carolina for 200k with next to nothing property taxes on that salary! That's why we need to look for those who value being at OUR university
after several salary freezes at UMD, he wasn't making much at UMD. And agree the cost of living is an issue that our school has dealt with for decades. On a similar note, ECU's AD was just hired last month at a salary of 415K. That's economically like 2x what we're paying Kevin.
And then you're stuck living in or around Greenville, NC? Awesome.

Kevin deserves a pay cut for incompetence.
Do you claim to have some sort of expert insight, because the last time I checked KA was making $401k per year
Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson will receive a base salary of $401,015 as part of a five-year contract signed last week. The contract was released by the university Tuesday afternoon. The contract was obtained through a public records request made in September to the university after Anderson's hire was announced. Anderson's predecessor, Debbie Yow, had a base salary of $382,574 in the last year of her contract, which was signed in 2007. Yow announced in June she would depart after 16 years at Maryland to become N.C. State's athletic director. Anderson, who took over at Maryland earlier this month after...
plus 50K a year to make public appearances, plus 10K/yr car allowance. His annual guaranteed comp is ~462K per the article you linked plus performance bonuses. Sorry if I used rounded numbers. Also, next time have the stones to not post under an alias.
That underscores my point. While you and I wouldn't want to live in Greenville, or Oxford or Norman, we grew up in this region and/or went to school at Maryland. We have a loyalty to the school and an affinity for the area, therefore the "allure" of other jobs isn't there and people like us would stay longer in such a position (and likely care a heck of a lot more too)
I actually think the cost of living situation is mostly at the junior and mid-level ranks of the department. There's just been so much transition and and upheaval in the department. New AD in 2010, restructuring of Athletic Development in 2011, new VP of Univ Relations in 2012, then restructure of all campus wide development in 2013. There hasn't been much stability at the Univ the last three years and that's a big issue. Hopefully we can sail in some smoother waters the next few years.

I recently saw a book on Stan Musial. He volunteered to take a pay cut one season, because he had a relatively poor (by his standards) season the year before. Talk about a never more to be seen concept!
