NCAA President Mark Emmert Made $1.7 M in 2011

Jul 12 2013, 1:40am CDT | by

The NCAA's new federal tax return reveals association president Mark Emmert earned almost $1.7 million in 2011.

NCAA president Mark Emmert reportedly made almost $1.7 million in 2011. 

USA Today Sports' Steve Berkowitz writes this figure is based on the NCAA's new federal tax return. The year 2011 marked Emmert's first as NCAA president. He succeeded the late Myles Brand, who was also the former president of Indiana University.  

The return, which was requested for by USA Today Sports, breaks down Emmert's earnings two years ago:

- $1,201,159 in base compensation

- $234,300 in retirement and deferred compensation

- $214,947 in other reportable compensation

- $23,689 in non-taxable benefits

Brand earned $1,145,880 in his final year as president, which is 46 percent less than Emmert's salary. 

Eammon Brennan of ESPN notes Emmert's salary is earned by some university presidents, which was a position Emmert assumed at the University of Washington prior to being named NCAA president. Controversial former Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee earned $2 million in 2012 while Penn State's Graham Spanier took hom $2.9 million in 2011-12. 

Brennan points out the average university president's annual salary hovers around the $500,000 range, per the Chronicle of Higher Education

The news from the world of amateur athletics over the last month could be summed up by saying, “The NCAA is dead! Long live the NCAA!” Let me explain: As anyone with the ability to even spell “law school” predicted, the NCAA officially lost its case against former UCLA All-American and 1995 Tournament Most Outstanding Player Ed O’Bannon, and they can no longer use the likenesses of players without providing some form of compensation. As Judge Claudi ...
