Description

College football and men’s college basketball generate more than $6 Billion in annual revenue- that’s more than the NBA! • A top college coach can make as much or more than a professional coach; • Ohio State just agreed to pay Urban Meyer $24 million over six years. • At the University of Texas, Mack Brown, the football coach, can earn up to $6 million with bonuses. • Powerful conferences like the S.E.C. and the Pac 12 have signed lucrative TV deals, while the Big 10 and the University of Texas have created their own sports networks. • Companies like Coors and Chick-Fil-A eagerly toss millions in marketing dollars at college sports. • Last year, TBS and CBS signed a 14-year, $10.8 billion deal for the television rights to the N.C.A.A.’s “March Madness”And what does the labor force that makes it possible for coaches to earn millions, and causes marketers to spend billions, get? Nothing.It’s time these athletes received compensation!
