Frankly, I'm concerned that Pitt may make a big dollar offer to ND's equipment manager. The Administration needs to show that they have their budget priorities in order and lock that guy in to a long-term contract with a big raise for him and his staff. They haven't extended his contract since the season ended - what are they waiting for!
I don't know where he ranks in pay compared to the equipment managers in the SEC, but if ND is to be a #1 program it must have the #1 paid equipment manager.
And what is Fortune's salary these days? You've got to pay the man top dollars if you want a top field.
