Jim Christian Salary: The U.S. college basketball coach James Patrick Christian was born on February6,1965 and most recently was head coach for the men’s basketball team at Boston College. In Kent State, TCU and Ohio he had previously held the same position. Christian signed a two-year contract extension in 2021–22 on 25 April 2018 to stay at Boston College. On 15 February 2021 he was exempt from his duties. The decision of Boston College to hold Jim Christian in the Eagle fanbase was announced on Monday. It was a decision that almost completely reacted negatively. But the more I read, the more I am convinced that the decision is meaningful.
Jim Christian is going to get $425,000 basic pay in the coming five years from Ohio’s Head Men’s basketball coach. The $425 thousand makes Christian Ohio University’s highest paid employee ahead of President Roderick McDavis’s close to $390 thousand salary and the $330,000 basic salary of Frank Solich, head football coach.
The salary of Christian is also $125,000 higher than the $300, 000 base salary used by former Head Coach John Groce. The apparent $125 000 raise will not be paid out of the general fund or general fee of the university. According to the Ohio athletics information director Tom Symonds, it will instead be paid for by “non-institutional athletic generated revenue,”
