What A Colossal Waste of Money

Post by DS2001 » Mon May 17, 2021 4:24 pm

Saw this headline in the Tennessean today from Adam Sparks:
Vanderbilt paid $5.4 million to Bryce Drew and Jerry Stackhouse for eight wins in 2019

Pretty much cancelled out the Huber Donation of 5 Million: Zeppos, Williams and Malcom Butler(another story) were asleep at the wheel back then.

How embarrassing...we were in UT territory spending that kind of money for ineptitude.

This article says the Titans SAVED $10.2 million by cutting Malcolm Butler.

Thank goodness we've almost cleaned house of all that mess.

We've kept Corbin (obviously).

We got ADCSL, who will end up being a rock star.

We got CCL, who will need a few years to put things in the cupboard but was a home run hire for us.

We seem to have penned a women's BB coach who was probably above our reach for that program.

Men's BB? Well, we'll see but I'm not confident at all.

Almost done. With money well spent finally.

For the year ending 6/30/19, Vanderbilt's Form 990 shows the following:
Bryce Drew: Salary, $1,903,539 plus bonuses $88,758 for a total of $1,992,297
Derrick Mason: Salary, $3,299,614 plus bonuses $234,883 for a total of $3,534,497
Total for both: $5,526,794

In comparison: Tim Corbin: Salary: $1,162,175, Bonuses $197,020 for a total of $1,359,195. Of course all he did in the spring of 2019 was win a national championship.

Bryce Drew and Derrick Mason earned bonuses?????? LMAO!

$88K bonus to Drew, which amounts to $1.50 per clap.
