Yes, Delany has been with the Big Ten for quite some time now. And he has made the Big Ten the (probably) most powerful conference in the USA. But, is he worth $1.6 million a year? (That figure includes all benefits). I understand why many coaches make that much cash or more, because they have an absolutely brutal schedule for a good chunk of each year, and because they could be fired pretty quickly if they have a bad year or two. And maybe Delany has a rough schedule also. But I'm a bit uneasy with that much compensation for a job like that. Maybe I shouldn't be, with the success he has had. And I'm sure that, compared to the salaries of many executives, Delany is a bargain. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.
