Today, several NCAA assistant basketball coaches were arrested and charged with corruption.
According to the Wall Street Journal, law enforcement officials arrested around 6-10 people after a “wide-ranging investigation into alleged bribery and kickback schemes.”
But NCAA assistant basketball coaches like Chuck Person, Lamont Evans, Emanuel Richardson, Tony Bland, and a multitude of others do very well from their NCAA salaries.
So what are their salaries/net worth? Read on…
NCAA basketball assistant coaches are very well paid. People like Chuck Person, Lamont Evans and others make significant salaries every year, and they also receive benefits from their organizations.
According to the Houston Chronicle, NCAA basketball assistant coaches made up to $160,000 in base salaries in 2013. That figure is likely up to $180,000 now.
However, some of the top assistant coaches make significantly more. In fact, some of them can make up to $250,000 or more per year.
Lamont Evans was succeeded at USC by Matt Figer. His salary was $260,000, according to The State. That would suggest Evans is making in the realm of $250,000+ in is current position. We would then estimate Lamont Evans net worth at $1 million or more.
Chuck Person was also doing very well for the last several years. At Auburn, Person earned from $180,000 earlier in his career, to $240,000 toward the end. Given that Person had such a high salary, he also is estimated to have a net worth of over $1 million.
Tony Bland’s career as an assistant head coach at USC has been very lucrative. In 2013, when he got his first offer to take on the assistant coach position, he was offered a package of $250,000, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
Since then, he has likely received raises to put him at at least $300,000 per year, possibly more. In total we estimate his net worth at between $1 million and $2 million.
Emanuel Richardson is earning slightly less than the other assistant coaches above. According to the University of Arizona salary database, Richardson is currently earning $204,000, as the assistant coach of men’s basketball. We estimate Emanuel Richardson net worth at slightly less than $1 million.
