Louisville to implement 10% pay cuts for coaches, staffers

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville athletic director Vince Tyra says head coaches and senior department staffers will take 10% salary cuts to offset anticipated revenue shortfalls because of cancellations due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tyra said Thursday during a conference call that his department expects to save about $15 million with the cuts. About $10 million of that estimate savings comes from salary reductions for men’s basketball coach Chris Mack, football coach Scott Satterfield, women’s basketball coach Jeff Walz and baseball coach Dan McDonnell. The AD says he will forego his $150,000 bonus the next two years.
