Special circumstances going on at Iowa.  Former field hockey coach and former female assistant AD both suing the university for gender discrimination, and this on top of the messy Gayle Blevins departure several years ago.  Marla Looper is safe, despite losing 79 games the last two seasons.

If coaches are smart, they will keep changing jobs and drive up the price points for all their peers and themselves....   $500K is Walton's burden for the sport, he has to leave Florida to get it... he has to make the move and drive up salaries in the process...  #thisisbusinessboysandgirls

Maybe only 10-15 schools even willing to approach 200K.

Most D1 baseball coaches don't even make 500k, only the big boys do so to even suggest this is funny.  never gonna happen.

Top Head Coach Salaries

College head coaches are typically required to have a bachelor’s degree in a sport or health related field, and at least four years experience at the high school head coach or college assistant coach level. They need extensive understanding of their sports including the rules and regulations for college and professional level competition. Head college football coaches in 2012 were paid a median base salary of $267,800, according to the CUPAHR survey. The most successful and highest paid college football coaches actually earned from $2,500,000 to $5,190,000, according to a December 2011 ESPN article. The second-highest paying sport for college coaches is basketball. Top salaries reached as high as $4,000,000, according to a March 2012 Forbes article. The median base salary earned in 2012 by a men’s college basketball head coach, however, was $236,300.

Median Salaries in Men’s Sports

The CUPAHR survey determined median salaries in all areas of college coaching as of February 2012. According to the survey, a head coach in men’s baseball earned a median salary of $57,500. At the same time, track and field coaches earned $52,728. Swimming coaches earned $55,358. Men’s gymnastics coaches earned $68,163. The median salary for rowing coaches was $58,290. Colleges offering golf, soccer, wrestling and hockey paid head coaches of those sports median base salaries ranging from $48,999 to $93,461

She will tell her team she will BRB until she finds iowa a new coach and lobbies the iowa AD (based on this article Hutch and the AD may be in for a long fight for man va woman hire, lol).. Romero's mom is in charge until she gets back to Ann Arbor.

I just came across this board. I cannot believe there aren't more coaches mentioned on the hot seat?  In years past it seems this board was going strong this time of the year?

I know of a couple of Big East schools that need to look at the recent success of their coaches. Sadly, the league as a whole doesn't put a whole lot of emphasis on softball. 8 team league that only sends the top 4 to a single elim tournament. Website that was only updated with players of the week and an occasional story. Longtime coaches with marginal to no national success.

This are, for the most part, outstanding academic schools in great cities. They should be able to recruit better players throughout the league, not just to Chicago.

Looks like Valpo is playing for the Horizon Championship. Maybe Coach is getting things back on trck?

Shane Bauman as a possible replacement at Iowa? They had a great year last year, but look how bad they are now. That would be a terrible hire if they make a move.

Shane Bouman didn't get the job the first time - doubt HE would be considered this time. (HE emphasized).

Great win for Valpo but the coach was not going anywhere even if they lost. She replaced a bad situation at Valpo (record was great, but the coach made very poor decisions and ultimately resigned.) She will be there for a long time because they care less about wins and more about having a solid moral leader. And this championship sure helps.

1. UCLA

3. Texas
4. Michigan
5. Oklahoma
6. Florida
7: LSU
8. Alabama
9. Cal/Stanford (take your pick, both with their education provided and recruiting pool could be a quick turnaround)
10. Florida State (based on location, recruiting pool, overall athletic dominance, power wifhin their conference)/Tennessee


What are you basing your Top 10 on?

It's a BIG difference being at the head of the table. Great player doesn't = great coach. Good assistant doesn't = great head coach

Somewhat true and 100% true (as it relates to males in softball).

Is Indiana going to make a change? Southernmost Big Ten school, gorgeous campus, nice facilities. They should not be as bad as they are and that could be an attractive job in a mediocre-at-best Big Ten.

I think Gartner is getting it turned around, I watched the game against Wisconsin in the Big Ten tournament, team looked solid against a team that beat Minnie twice and beat also Nebraska. They beat OSU twice and had a strong young pitcher. Yeah, they got rolled by Big Blue but so did a lot of teams. I haven't seen the latest RPI, but I imagine it's improved from last season.

Allister recruits the state really well. If she's able to do that in AZ and then grab a few CA players, she'd do really well.

Interesting that the take is that Hutch controls B1G hiring when apparently she can't do that at her own school.  Michigan has men coaching women's teams in soccer, swimming, volleyball, rowing, track, cross country and water polo.  7 of 14 women's sports are coached by men.

Tell me just how she goes about dictating to other B1G athletic departments who they should hire.  I'd love to hear the details on just how that's done.
