I ran across this and, with talk about accountability with players and coaches a hot topic in several threads, thought it was appropriate to discuss.
Cliff notes version:
- Mike Bobo (HC) declines automatic 100K pay raise due to 3-9 record and missing part of the season due to illness.
- Pay stays at 1.8M this season. Still scheduled to make 2M in 2020.
- Cites as reason: "It was just something that was on my heart and being the head coach I wanted to take personal accountability for the 2018 season"
My thoughts: Refreshing to see something like this. I think it's generally low risk, as 100K (to him) would probably not be life changing, and he's still on track to make the same amount in 2020. But this builds good faith with administration and is something that (hopefully) his team would take notice.
