Is Lew Perkins’ $545,000 salary and $1.3 million retention bonus adequate, or is he underpaid?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 25, 2004
“I think that it is a ridiculous sum. He makes more money than the president. I think that free tickets to the games should be enough.”
“I think it is too soon to judge if he is doing a good job. We will see if he is worth it.”
“I think it is outrageous. They need to pay teachers more. The sports program is doing just fine whether he’s there or not.”
“If that is underpaid, then I am living under a bridge. I guess it isn’t as much as they pay the director at Texas A&M, but it is still unnecessary.”
