If there is any good that will come from the Penn State debacle is that when it comes to compliance entities cannot police themselves. Had Penn State, consulted outside counsel and performed a thorough investigation then the Sandusky issue would have been resolved long ago. Penn State as an institution may have been a bit embarrassed to have such a vile individual using entity resources to commit his heinous acts. However, their institutional and the individual reputations would not have taken such a battering. Regardless of what we want to believe, college athletics belong to the institutions and if they are state institutions the athletics ultimately belong to all members of the state. As such, Shaka's and all coaches contracts at VCU are a matter of public record and should be scrutinized at all times. NBC did us a service by writing this article. However, as BradRam, and CVAN accurately point out, NBC should have written a more thorough article that evaluated the factors that lead to Shaka's record breaking salary. Few who are close to the program question Shaka's salary. However, articles such as these if written appropriately serve the University and the Commonwealth as they would demonstrate that we at VCU are above board, and if there were issue help us to deal with them immediately.
