UNT football coaches, Hedlund have new deals in place

I got a hold of a few contracts I have been trying to get from UNT for a while. I will go over what this all means in tomorrow’s paper, but the basics are this …

– UNT soccer coach John Hedlund received a big raise and an extension, a well-deserved raise, if you ask me. The guy is 19 for 19 when it comes to posting winning seasons and has gone to three NCAA tournaments. He will make $70,000 next year, his 20th season at the school.

– All of UNT’s returning assistant coaches received new contracts after last year.

– The total compensation pool for UNT assistants jumped about 11 percent.

– The total pool for assistant coaches is about $1.32 million.

Here’s the chart that will run with tomorrow’s story:
