Mark Emmert Takes In $1.9M In Total Salary For '15, Well Below Power Five Commissioners

Published

Emmert’s base salary of $1,462,838 in '15 was a 3.5% increase over '14
NCAA President Mark Emmert was "credited with more" than $1.9M in total compensation during the '15 calendar year, according to the Steve Berkowitz of USA TODAY. The NCAA's most recent tax return shows Emmert’s base salary of $1,462,838 represented an increase of about 3.5% over his base salary amount for '14, or almost $52,000. After getting a $10,000 bonus in '14, Emmert "received no bonus money" in '15. He was "reported with nearly $240,000 in deferred pay, an amount comparable to those reported for him in each of his first four full calendar years on a job he has held" since October '10. The largest bonus paid by the NCAA in '15 went to Exec VP/Regulatory Affairs & Strategic Partnerships Oliver Luck, who resigned as West Virginia’s AD to join the NCAA in January of that year. He received a $50,000 bonus, which was "more than three times greater than the next-largest bonus that the association reported." Altogether, Luck was "credited with just over $800,000 in compensation, including $670,000 in base pay." NCAA Chief Legal Officer Donald Remy was "credited with more than $850,000 in compensation, including nearly $710,000 in base pay and a $10,000 bonus." Remy was credited with a total of just over $825,000 in '14. Berkowitz noted Emmert's base and total compensation "remain well below" those for commissioners of Power Five conferences who were in their jobs for the entire '15 calendar year (USATODAY.com, 5/18).
