Also heard the “No Offense to the NCSU Job, but Dayton is the mecca of BB….” BS.

I WILL say this, the PNC crowd of 13K at Dayton did look pretty impressive. I have watched a LOT of ACC and other P5 Conf games were there was about 25 – 50% in attendance.

Miller’s contract runs through 2023 and was just “re-upped” last year.

Here is a blurb from the DU AD….

UD would not reveal Miller’s current total compensation, but outgoing UD President Dan Curran indicated that the popular coach has received two raises since his pay was bumped to $1.16 million two years ago, after the Flyers advanced to the Elite Eight in the 2014 tournament.

“It’s been increased appropriately,” Curran said. “He is where Shaka was.”

Curran was referring to former VCU coach Shaka Smart, who was the A-10’s highest-paid coach before he took the University of Texas job in April 2015. ESPN reported at the time that Smart made $1.8 million in his last year at VCU.

UD wants to keep Miller the highest-paid coach in the A-10, Curran said. The Flyers have a 78-28 record over the past three seasons and are 115-55 in Miller’s first five seasons.

“We want him at the top of the A-10,” Curran said. “We want to make it so he financially isn’t questioning marginal jobs in some of the larger conferences.

So, Miller is probably around $2 Million and Gottfried was at $2.5, Guaranteed, with two cars and a large, VERY LARGE, incentive package (40%) for both athletics and scholarship. The comments that we need to be in the $3.5 Million range are probably NOT that far off…

We WILL see what transpires…
