2017-18 FBS Athletics Directors' Compensation Survey

By:  Robert Lattinville & Roger Denny

We reviewed all forms of compensation for the athletic directors at member institutions in the Autonomy 5 Conferences. We analyzed these employment agreements and related documents (the, “Contracts”), which were obtained in partnership with USAToday, and created a sortable database of primary compensation (note: the full FBS Athletic Director Database, the “Database,” can be found within this piece on ADU).

Unlike the market for college coaches, there is not a traditional hiring period for college athletic directors. Consequently, the awarding, termination and administration of their Contracts, including adjustments to the duration and compensation prescribed by those Contracts, occurs throughout the calendar year.  Thus, total compensation for college athletic directors is typically more difficult to normalize at any given time relative to compensation for college coaches. An independent methodology (described in the Database) was consistently applied to the analysis of each Contract in order to normalize the economic data derived therefrom and enhance its comparative utility. 

From the foregoing analysis, we respectfully submit...

Five Takeaways:

1.    Average Total Compensation By Conference
2.    Total Compensation Relative to School’s Athletic Department Revenue and Expense
3.    Increase in Compensation within the past 5 years
4.    Bonus Compensation
5.   AD Compensation relative to Coach Compensation (Autonomy 5 FB & MBB   Head Coaches)
