Mick Cronin's Contract Extension

New, 3 comments


There isn't a ton out there. The contract isn't accessible to the public, and I am sure as hell not going to spend my time using the freedom of information act to get it. But there are some of the basics out there courtesy of Bill Koch who actually got off his ass and did some work for a change*.

  • Three more years added to the current contract which puts Mick Cronin on the Athletic Department books until 2017
  • Raise in base pay for Cronin from roughly $900,000.00 to 1,250,000.00 annually.
  • No real funding changes for infrastructure improvements. Anything Mick wants he has to raise the money for himself.
  • No word on incentive clauses. Basketball contracts aren't usually as incentive laden as Football contracts are, but there are usually a couple things in them.  

All in all Mick Cronin got enough of what he wanted to stay put. The push back from the Athletic Department made it a tense couple of days, doubly so when you consider just how much money N.C. State was willing to throw at a new coach. Regardless Cronin is in Clifton for the foreseeable future, which is a good thing as far as I am concerned.
