Nutt will probably not get the job, but he desperately wanted to go through the interview process I hear.

Neither is going to happen, there some amazing people out there but I don't see ASU having the money, see Hugh Freeze as example, plus hes a Mississippi guy. Mike Sherman would be freaking amazing since he just got wrongfully fired from Texas a&m

well lets see. Nutt was getting 1.8 MILLION at ole redneck university. Sherman was getting 1.5 @ a and m. They got paid about $6 MILLION each TO GO AWAY<>

Sure, they going to take $180,000, and free passes to Karaoke @ the Eagles to come to the boogie.

I was joking about Tuberville - I expect to see the Jonesboro Red Wuffs go after Greene County Tech's coach.

Finally some truthfull comments. I doubt Nutt would even look at $250,000 a year with all the money he has. Plus, dang near everyone in Arkansas hates him even though he was one of the best coaches they ever had. ASU will hire some no name that nobody has ever heard of for $150,000 a year and return to mediocrity like they always have been. If ASU wants to step up and be big time.....they are gonna have to open up the pocket book. You get what you pay for!

i think these coaches should have a salary cap of 50 thousand a year..these universities should focus on an affordable education for students instead of paying these coaches such a high salary.every time you turn around asu is raising tuition.

Sports money helps to pay for new facilities and building as well as research for different departments.

If it's self sustaining...sure. AState charges it's full time students around $500 a year, while U of A has a policy not to charge an athletic fee to it's students. It's obvious that the community is not as involved in supporting sports at ASU, so the school decides to hit broke students up for the cost. It's a shame since you can't decide to opt out and it creates resentment also for many having to pay

If they are gonna pay the coaches that much they should go ahead and pay the players then. I mean who's doing all the work here.

sure,$50K for a coach. really? High schools pay more than that. Coach Lunney in Bentonville makes over $100k!!

Colleges do not raise tuition to pay coaches, especially in Arkansas where there is a limit to how much "state money" can be used to pay. They then use money form private donors, foundations etc. Petrino is not making all that cheddar from the state.

and...$150k is not "a lot of money" in that field. Those guys work 70 hours a week. The Dean @ ASU pulls in $225K, has a free car, free health care, GUARENTEED retirement etc. what exactly does he do?

Usually it is the band nerds that complain about sports. As the previous post noted, sports pay for all the other crap...why would anyone get a band scholarship? no football=no need for a band.

the fees are a pain in the arse, when I was there I did not want any of my fees supporting the gay club, the international club, etc.
Just put it all in the tuition instead of the various fees.

I think more than "band nerds" complain about sports. With the current economic situation our nation is in and many people stuck with student loans after graduation, more people are looking at this topic with more scrutiny. If you have a big program that makes money and has a large backing from their alumni then by all means spend it, but don't fall into the trap of trying to keep up with those if you aren't one. Focus more on academics or maybe...I dunno...finish construction on that big pile of steel in the middle of campus before you worry about paying some crazy salary for the next coach that will leave if offered money you can't match anyways.

I agree. There are some people who believe that ASU should discontinue their football program and concentrate on basketball. This would allow them to have a much more successful basketball program and most likely save money too. Football success has been scarce and expensive, now it will take even more money to hire a coach with the offer that was made to Freeze. There's no disgrace in not having football.

wow $500 a year that sure would make me decide not to go to college.
I guess ASU should not accept the bowl money coming. Now my head hurts after trying to rationalize your post.
