Stoops On College Athletes: “Paid Quite Often, Quite A Bit And Quite Handsomely.”

Bob StoopsAdd Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops to the list of people with an opinion on paying college athletes.  “I tell my guys all the time,” Stoops tells Matt Hayes of The Sporting News, “you’re not the first one to spend a hungry Sunday without any money.”  If you guessed that he’s not sympathetic to the idea, you guessed correctly.


“You know what school would cost here for non-state guy? Over $200,000 for room, board and everything else. That’s a lot of money. Ask the kids who have to pay it back over 10-15 years with student loans. You get room and board, and we’ll give you the best nutritionist, the best strength coach to develop you, the best tutors to help you academically, and coaches to teach you and help you develop. How much do you think it would cost to hire a personal trainer and tutor for 4-5 years?

“I don’t get why people say these guys don’t get paid. It’s simple, they are paid quite often, quite a bit and quite handsomely.”


The tab for out of state tuition, room and board and books at Oklahoma is  $29,924.50 per year. Hayes does the math on the impact for the Sooners’ program – “That’s $149,622.50 alone over five years for 58 players on the 79-man spring roster who aren’t from the state of Oklahoma.”

OU Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel doesn’t agree with his boss.  “I think there should be some stipend,” while others wonder about the perception of a coach “making $4 million a year telling athletes to suck it up and go hungry.”




I think ol' stinky has this one right.
