South Carolina administrators, coaches volunteer to take pay reductions to help school save costs
The biggest names associated with the University of South Carolina are stepping up to help the school in its time of need.
On Tuesday, the school announced that several key staff members have volunteered to take a 10 percent pay cut to help school save costs following the coronavirus pandemic.
Will Muschamp, Frank Martin and Dawn Staley are among the coaches to accept the pay cut, along with AD Ray Tanner and president Bob Caslen.
“The global health crisis will continue to have a significant impact on the university, and I applaud our university officials and coaches for their willingness to personally contribute to our institution’s financial health,” Caslen said in a prepared statement. “From the very beginning of the pandemic, our leadership team has responded with tremendous professionalism and a singular determination to help the university navigate through this unprecedented challenge. I thank them for their deep commitment to our students and our mission.”
South Carolina estimates the school will lose around $40 million due to the coronavirus pandemic.
