Only 50K a year?

 

I think government job postings require things like that. In addition to whether or not the job requires a CDL, forklift, heavy lifting, etc. even if they're not remotely applicable.

I would imagine that a lot of responsibilities would be associated with the position that Ali Farokhmanesh had last year. He moved on to being an assistant coach at Drake.

 

Wonder if Tim Miles has someone in mind but the university requires the position to be posted for all to see before hiring his "guy."

So how does the university not have to do a random drug test with the CDL? Or am I reading this wrong.

Ali's job was more in player development. This seems more to fall under the recruitment side of things.

I think "minimum" is key there.  

 

You can check out what any university employee makes.  Ali was basically making this same amount for this position.

But unless I am mistaken, the position is sort of like a waiter or waitress.  Much of the income is not salary based.  Wait staff supplement their salary through tips, while the Director position(s) supplement their salaries through camps, and perhaps speaking engagements and so forth.
