How much money would they have to pay you to run the NCAA? Well, that's a question only you can answer for yourself, but if you're name is Mark Emmert the answer is about $1.7 million a year.
According to the NCAA's tax return, that's the total amount of compensation Emmert received from the NCAA for the calendar year of 2011 -- which actually runs from September 2011 to August 2012. The NCAA's tax return was filed last week.
But according to the return, which was acquired by USA Today, Emmert received $1,201,159 in base compensation. He also received $234,300 in retirement and deferred compensation, $214,947 in other reportable compensation and $23,689 in nontaxable benefits. Add it all up and it comes to a grand total of $1,674,095.
Being the president of an nonprofit organization that promotes amateurism sure pays well, doesn't it?
