Ryan Gets His Raise
After winning a Big Ten title and advancing to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament, Wisconsin basketball head coach Bo Ryan is getting a raise.
The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents gave the go ahead on a pay raise that will increase Ryan’s salary from $950,000 to $1,175,000 beginning next season.
Wisconsin’s season ended with a 73-56 loss to the Davidson Wildcats in the Midwest Regional Semifinal at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich.
In addition to Ryan’s raise, UW-Madison athletic director Barry Alvarez will see his current salary of $600,000 increase to $750,000 for the 2008-09 school year, officially starting July 1.
Both raises will not be funded by the state, but rather from additional compensation agreements.
