UW ranks No. 22 in ’09 revenue; Romar’s salary comparable to other top coaches

According to Forbes.com, Washington was the third-highest revenue producing team in 2009 in the Pac-10 behind Arizona and UCLA.
Forbes took a look at all 73 teams in the six BCS conferences and (Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, ACC, Pac 10, SEC) and ranked them in terms of reported revenue.
Duke topped the list at $26.7 million and UW was No. 22 nationally.
Here’s a look at where the Pac-12 schools ranked and the revenue they reported.
4 …… Arizona ……………… $19,285,038
20 …. UCLA ………………… $12,353,487
22 …. Washington ………… $11,481,376
40 …. Arizona State ………. $8,591,421
53 …. California ……………. $6,967,208
60 …. Stanford ……………… $6,191,021
65 …. Oregon State ………. $4,938,930
70 …. Colorado …………….. $3,587,371
71 …. Washington State …. $3,544,745
72 …. USC ……………………. $3,535,629
73 …. Oregon ……………….. $3,240,150
Note: Utah is not ranked because the Utes were in a non-BSC conference in ’09.
— Forbes.com reports the 2009 basketball revenue in the Pac-10 was last among the power conferences and accounted for 22.9 percent of the total men’s sports revenue. We can assume the UW football team accounted for the other 77.1 percent.
— Washington’s Lorenzo Romar collected a base salary of $1.3 million for the 2010-11 season, which ranks 27th among the 68 coaches in the NCAA Tournament. according to a USA Today survey.
Louisville’s Rick Pitino tops the list at $7.5 million, but his salary included a one-time $3.6M bonus.
Here’s a look at the other Pac-12 coaches on the list:
Arizona’s Sean Miller ….. $2,305,805
UCLA’s Ben Howland ….. $2,010,000
USC’s Kevin O’Neill …….. N/A
And here’s a look at the coaches in the Final Four:
Kentucky’s John Calipari …….. $3,917,000
Connecticut’s Jim Calhoun ….. $2,300,000
Butler’s Brad Stevens …………. $434,382
VCU’s Shaka Smart ……………. $424,000
Got to believe Stevens and Smart will soon receive a significant raise.
