Dave Wannstedt Must Go

The fact that incoming Pitt football coach Dave Wannstedt wouldn't take the job unless every one of his assistants gets $100,000 per year doesn't embarrass me, as a Pitt employee. No, I'm embarrassed by the fact that the University apparently gave in to Wannstedt's demand. Not only does every assistant get at least $100,000, but the offensive and defensive coordinators get $250,000 to $300,000 apiece.

No doubt Pitt's custodial and clerical staffs are delighted by the University's generosity.

And one word to Pitt athletes: Union! If there's that much money floating around Oakland, then you all should get a bigger cut.
