Lemonis introduced, signs contract for five years, $250,000 per year

By   |   Tuesday, Jul. 22, 2014 - 6:41 PM   |   No comments

The details of Chris Lemonis’s contract suggest that it comes with patience.

At Lemonis’s introductory press conference on Tuesday — held nearly three weeks after his hiring because of summer scheduling conflicts — Indiana athletic director Fred Glass announced that his new baseball coach will sign a five-year deal for $250,000 per year. That’s less than former coach Tracy Smith made before he departed for Arizona State, but it still makes him one of the highest-paid coaches in the Big Ten.

“I just thought a multi-year contract made sense given our general commitment to baseball,” Glass said. “I wanted Chris to feel like he could continue to keep it going in the right way and not keep looking over his shoulder, and frankly, someone who has succeeded in the way that Chris has, I think, deserves that kind of stability going in.”
