UO gives coach Kelly Graves 6 year, $3M perkalicious contract

$500k a year, bonuses, car, country club memberships, outside income, etc. Contract here. This is for a sport that loses millions a year. The administration was supposed to consult with the Senate’s IAC about this hire, but didn’t.

In other news, Diane Dietz has a story in the RG about UO’s tuition increases for out-of-state students. It’s nice to see that Brad Shelton and Roger Thompson aren’t regurgitating UO’s past claims that big-time sports brings in high-paying students, at least when they talk to the press and present to the UO Trustees. So why are we subsidizing it?

    3 x Kelly Graves, or 2-5 hires for each of the cluster hire departments. Looks like exceptional academic talent comes very cheap.
