Who’s the highest paid employee in the Virginia Tech athletic department?
Frank Beamer, of course, at about $2 million per year. But who’s got the highest
salary? That’s a different question, and via the magic of a database on
the Collegiate Times web site, we can find out who makes what in the VT Athletic
Department.

The CT has a database of Virginia
Public University Salaries
, and you can search and sort any public
university in the state — or all of them — by name, department, and year
(2007-2009).

(Note: In addition to 11 state schools that you would expect in the database,
Ohio State University — THE Ohio State University — is included in the
database. That must have something to do with an OSU satellite campus in the
state of Virginia, but I wasn’t able to find out any information in 2 minute of
Googling and poking around. Maybe it’s just there for comparison purposes.)

Here’s
a direct link to the VT salaries database
for 2009. The database only lists
salaries, not total compensation, so what you see in the database isn’t
necessarily someone’s total pay. Frank Beamer, for instance, is listed at
$272,328 salary, but his total pay (about $2 million) is over seven times that.
Bonuses are not included in the listing, and as you know from following VT
football in recent years, when the football team makes a bowl game, bonuses
flow all over the place
, almost half a million dollars’ worth, even down to
equipment manager Lester Karlin.

The highest salaried employee at Virginia Tech is president Charles Steger,
of course, at a cool $457,040. Here at TechSideline.com, though, we’re not
interested in what the academicians make. We want to know about the athletic
department. Type "Athletic" in the Department search
