Nebraska will pay its basketball assistants a total of $1 million for the 2019-20 season, the second-most of any school in the Big Ten. The school announced on Monday it will pay former NU head coach and Fred Hoiberg assistant Doc Sadler $320,000 a year. Armon Gates, originally hired by Tim Miles but retained by Hoiberg, will make $300,000. That’s a raise from his previous salary of $256,000. Assistant Matt Abdelmassih will make the most with $380,000. He’ll be the second-highest paid assistant in the Big Ten, trailing only Ryan Pedon at Ohio State, who makes $395,000 a year. According to published salaries of 11 Big Ten schools, Salder will rank fifth in the conference in pay and Gates will be tied for seventh. Last year, Nebraska’s assistants ranked 15th, 16th and 17th in assistant salary pay. Minnesota, Northwestern and Penn State keep coaching salaries private. The $1 million salary pool for the three NU assistant coaches ranks second only to Ohio State, which pays its three assistants a total of $1,020,000. Indiana ranks third with a pool of $890,000. – Chris Heady, omaha – Read More
