New Virginia Tech head football coach Brent Pry met with the media for the first time this morning and was introduced to Hokie fans via a livestreamed press conference. We’ll have more coming on that press conference, but the first item we want to share with you is the details of his compensation.

The press was issued a copy of a “Virginia Tech Letter of Intent Compensation Highlights” with the basic details of Pry’s compensation and staff compensation.

Note that these are not formal or finalized numbers, and this is not a formal contract at this point. We will update this article periodically as more details emerge.

  1. Now I know why coach Beamer is smiling…..There’s finally someone in Blacksburg that can afford to buy his house.

  2. Look at the LOI.

    “Your annual base compensation will be…”

    Next section:
    “Your annual base compensation will be…”

    Same exact thing. Typo? On a document passed out to the media?

  3. How much support staff can be had for $2.25M? 40 people at $50K is $2M. Tough to live in Bburg on $50K. Is 40 heads for nutrition, medical trainers, recruiting, football operations, tutoring, opponent scouting, etc., enough?

  4. Fuente will probably never get the credit deserved for being the guinea pig that taught our department to open up the checkbook.

    1. +1

      I will not have negative memories of Coach Fu.

      I do hope he lands somewhere good soon. Hopefully, he learned some valuable things too.

  5. Like the tie and the VT pin. Georgia gave Kirby Smart (former DC Alabama) the reins. Let’s see what he can do with our defense and the right Offensive coaching staff.

  6. I see no details yet about his “buyout and if recoverable” and “incentive clauses” if any. The incentives may be the “additional annual payments”, but these are shown as fixed??? Also, what about “incentives” for assistants and administrative staff? Are these included in their compensation pool, or yet to be determined?

  7. I think Whit understands that this hire has to work. He has hit it out of the park with most of his other hires since he has been AD here, but we all know that football rules the roost. These moves show that he has learned and that is all that I can ask for really. Now just have to hope that Coach Pry can hire good staff too!

    1. It’s a shame he had to learn that lesson at the expense of our football program but thank you to Fuente and the shot across the bow that obviously awakened a lot people and especially WB and your right. He better support this coach and give him what he needs to get the job done or his job will be the next one the line.

  8. Amazing! I think most Alums should give, but the salaries of football coaches is out of control – not consistent with logic for me. [I know, market value – markets have been known to collapse when the basis is not correct.]

    Thanks for the info.

    1. I’m going to add some tweets from David Cunningham to the article here in a sec that will answer that.
