    Generally, University coach contracts allow for outside income and bonuses, as well. There's usually a base salary, but then they are often allowed to run and profit from summer camps/clinics, books, podcasts, instructional material, get bonuses for wins, gpa maintenance, etc.

    This seems like a good, solid and honestly obvious choice [​IMG]

    The circumstances that lead to Jomo's departure were unfortunate but I am so excited to see her step into this role. When throwing around potential coaching names here, she was definitely on my short list (her and Christa Sanford, but I was not sure if Christa would ever leave Bama!)

    This also puts Ryan closer to her family geographically, I think? She was at Ole Miss then WKU and I feel like the school her mom coaches (Dunbar) is in Lexington-ish?

    Dunbar is in Lexington.


    She’d just taken a job at Western Kentucky. I have No clue about the geography of Kentucky to know how close Bowling Green and Lexington are

    It's a decent drive, 2.5ish hours, not too far though.

    ETA: I saw Ryan post about western Kentucky.


    Donna left Dunbar? Or Ryan has taken that job?

    I feel bad for the Western Kentucky program - tough situation for them, but it's a great hire for UK.

    Donna Martin still coaches at Paul Laurence Dunbar high school as far as I know.
