I came across these quotes from Mark Richt the other day when I was searching for something else on the intertubes:
According to Georgia coach Mark Richt, “The bottom line is, if you don’t win, you are going to get fired” (Eichelberger and Levinson, 2007, p. 1). Richt went on to say that he would recruit more academically prepared players if half his pay was based on academic performance, but that they might not be able to play and he would “get canned because you can’t play on the field”…
He’s honest, that’s for sure. And with that in mind, take a look at this chart:
Those Tedford bonuses kind of jump out at you, don’t they? And that’s at Cal Berkeley. It’s good to see an academic bastion with its priorities in order.
