Subject: Re: Hicks Salary
In reply to: Scott 's message, "Re: Loyola an attractive place for a coach?" on 10:53:20 02/19/03 Wed

Mac Dog, Is your info on Hicks salary accurate? It sounds quite high to me. My best guess would be that he makes in the area of 70-80K per year in salary. That of course doesn't include anything from apparel contracts and a basketball camp.

In response to some prior comments:
1. Loyola doesn't have to pay ACC like salaries to attract a good young coach. But if you find a good young coach, they need to step up to keep him. ACC salaries are obviously level above ours, but it is a good investment to increase the salary of someone who is taking the program in the right direction. There is no reason Loyola can't be a strong mid-major like a Gonzaga.
2. My previous comparison of Loyola to Xavier was misunderstood. Loyola and Xavier are very similar schools. The difference is that Xavier has made a commitment to having a winning basketball program. They are both jesuit schools with similar enrollment. I would be willing to bet that Loyola is also a much wealthier school when it comes to fund raising, but I don't know that for sure. It obviously takes a long time to build a program like Xavier has done, but it is not something that would be impossible for Loyola to do.
3. In regards to academics, Loyola defintely has the most difficult academic standards to meet in the MAAC conference. It definitely places more challenge in front of the coaches. But I am tired of making excuses for our program.
