USC’s impending move to the Big Ten has tongues wagging inside the athletic dept. as everyone wants to know what happens to that $100 million that will come to the Trojans yearly?
Coaches want to know if they will get bigger budgets. Employees want to know if they will get raises with the athletic dept. about to be flush with cash.
“How much will my budget increase,” one head coach said. “And not just for travel. We need a bigger recruiting budget for my sport because the Big Ten teams are spending more.”
USC is definitely going to spend more on chartered flights for non-revenue sports and men’s basketball.
It’s also going to have to make some adjustments with its football equipment. Usually, it sends a big truck to the road venue that leaves in the middle of the week. What happens when the game is in State College, Penn.? You might need to leave Sunday before the game to drive 2,567 miles.
But people within the dept. would like to know more about their overall budgets and raises? Over to you, Coach Bohn!
