    Wowzer!

    UCF: Athletic director Danny White has signed a new five-year deal that bumps his annual salary to $1,081,500, according to the a report. The new deal makes him the highest paid athletic director in The Sunshine State.

    UCF is also now paying Randy Shannon $1mil per.

    I would imagine Scott is about to get a new contract and sizable bump in pay.

    More passive agressive nonsense from UCF. They give him 5G more then Stricklin just so they can get a look at me headline. '
    But we do need to get Scott at least into the top 10 salaries.

    The Mullen decision alone warrants a huge raise.

    There in lies his brilliance, he so convinced all their fans/administration that actually happened into a huge raise. Hats off to him.

    This just proves that trolling in modern society is both acceptable and prudent. This is extra meta since the pay itself being slightly higher than Stricklin is itself a troll.

    I’d love for the state legislators to ask about how positive UCF’s budget is to pay such an outsized salary for the job at hand.

    Florida: Athletic director Scott Stricklin shares that he has had discussions with Dan Mullen on a contract extension, but there is no timetable for completion. Stricklin adds that he expects Mullen to be a Gator for a “long time.”

    This is good news. Reminds me. My wife is up for a contract extension. Performance incentives will be included of course.

    Just a suggestion, make sure the buyout is low if terminated with cause and will be mitigated by future earnings elsewhere.. :cool:

    Well of course they have to pay the UCF athletic director and their coaches a lot of money if they are any good at all -- they will leave for the big leagues if they get a chance. So they are doing what they can to keep them happy in AA ball for now to delay it.
