    Now that more info may be available...........Matt and Tim rreporting a salary of $650,000 .....it is a cruel joke

    She's making twice as much as Ray
    1/3 more than the NC Coach we talked to
    AND we are in a battle for dollars for facilities

    PREPOSTEROUS

    Here's what I read..

    5-year deal with a base salary of $250,000 (same as Coach Horn), with a total package reaching $650,000 annually.

    If the contract is approved, she'll make more guaranteed income than Coach Tanner ($345,000).

    The contract also includes a clause for USC to help pay some of her $500,000 buyout to Temple.

    That's a lot of

    ont he longevity question. Assuming the 5 year contract is correct, we will be hung with this expense for at least 8 years......that's how long we gave Susan for what we had. IN THE PROCESS WE HAVE PROBABLY STARTED A DAM SEC SALARY RACE THAT WE'LL BE SORRY FOR...BUT NO....I DONT THINK THE OTHER SCHOOLS ARE THAT DUMB.

    Nah, No i aint steamed......much!!!!!

    ^ I agree about the salary race. I think we may have overpaid.

    Pat Summitt makes just over $1 million at UT and look what all she has done. And the coach at Conneticut makes around $900,000....and again, look at what he's done.

    Looking back, this seems to have been a good hire.

    Probably the best hire we’ve made since Ray Tanner himself.

    Yikes. You were half right.

    To be fair, they were hired the same offseason. Outside of being concerned about hiring a potential flash in the pan mid-major coach (which was a concern of mine), there wasn't enough time for Horn to cause dissatisfaction among the fans.

    I find the complaining about her salary pretty funny too. I'd say she's more than earned whatever we've paid her.
