The number of athletics directors at major-college sports programs who make more than $1 million has risen to nine from six since 2011, and the number earning over $800,000 has climbed to 15 from 9, a USA Today analysis finds. Among the highlights of the report, which includes a database of all those institutions that agreed to share data with the newspaper (many private universities did not):
- The average director earned $515,000 in 2013, up 14 percent from 2011.
- The University of Texas's athletics director, DeLoss Dodds, gets a $62,500 annual bonus if his department is financially solvent -- not a hard hurdle to clear given its nearly $160 million in annual revenue.
