NOT BAD FOR A GUY WHO WAS RETIRING!
The Insite hears from sports friends in Louisiana that former Houston Comet’s coach Van Chancellor could be pulling down $500,000 plus incentives as the new female basketball coach at LSU. Chancellor is replacing the former coach who resigned in March under a cloud of scandal at the university in the Insite’s hometown. It’s my understanding that Pokey Chatman, who made around $400,000 a year, was accused of having a relationship with one of her players. So if the numbers are correct, Chancellor walks in making $100,000 more than Chatman. That gives Chancellor lots of room to take his salary in Baton Rouge through the roof and believe me advertisers in Louisiana love LSU!
Note: Did you know despite resigning from LSU, Pokey Chatman was still pad $33,000 a month up until the end of April. Sweet deal huh?
