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

What NCAA's Power-5 Autonomy Ruling Means for Notre Dame

Aug 8 2014 10:49am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

You can ruin a good thing.  So while on paper, the NCAA's approved restructuring to give the power-five conferences autonomy over their own governance makes sense, it also pushes us closer to the end of college sports as we know it. Hailed as progress, the restructuring (best described here by colleague Ben Kercheval) will firmly illustrated the distinct line in the sand between the "haves" and the "have-nots" in the ever-changing world of collegiate athletics. At ...

Which college sports power schools voted against 4-year scholarships?

Jul 10 2014 11:37am CDT | Source: SBNation

Many schools didn't even support the option for four-year scholarships in 2012, much less making them mandatory. One of the biggest points of contention at Wednesday's Senate hearing on college sports was Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) admonishing NCAA president Mark Emmert for not publicizing which schools tried to ban their peers from giving out four-year scholarships (or scholarships that coul ...
