In a September 8 article titled “What Does a College Pay for Its Football Coach? It Depends How Many It’s Paying,” the New York Times cites work done by Spencer Fane attorney Bob Lattinville.
The article mentions that “with coaches routinely fired after only a few disappointing seasons, many colleges are paying millions of dollars in “dead money” to former coaches even as they shell out even more for new ones.” This concept of “dead money” is one that Bob and fellow Spencer Fane attorney Roger Denny mention prominently in their analysis of coaches’ salaries. You can view a sample of their analysis here.
Bob Lattinville and Roger Denny are trusted by athletic directors, athletic departments and coaches throughout the sports industry, providing guidance in successfully navigating complex business, legal and regulatory issues associated with crucial hiring decisions.
