Perlman Names Shawn Eichorst Nebraska Athletic Director

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Harvey Perlman today announced the appointment of Shawn Eichorst as director of intercollegiate athletics. Eichorst, who has served as director of athletics at the University of Miami since April 2011, will join the University of Nebraska Oct. 9 as a special assistant to the chancellor, and will succeed Tom Osborne as director of intercollegiate athletics when Osborne becomes athletic director emeritus on Jan. 1.

“After consideration of a large number of candidates, I was impressed with Shawn’s credentials and experience but more importantly his respect for and appreciation of the tradition of the Nebraska athletics program,” Perlman said. “He expressed from the onset his hope to draw on the experience and knowledge of Tom Osborne and the rest of the current staff in working to continue the department’s success both on and off the field.”

Eichorst said: “It is truly an honor and privilege to be a part of one of the great universities in America and one of the strongest athletic departments in all of college sports who has the welfare of its student-athletes at the heart of everything they do. I am humbled by both the responsibility and opportunities that lie ahead and I hope to carry on the rich tradition of Husker excellence set by Coach Osborne and so many others.”

Osborne, who last month announced his intention to step down as athletic director effective Jan. 1. He has served as director of intercollegiate athletics since October 2007. Osborne will retire from the university on Aug. 1, 2013, will work with Eichorst until then to make a smooth leadership transition in the department, Perlman said.

Eichorst, a 1990 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, previously served as deputy athletics director at the University of Wisconsin-Madison under director of athletics Barry Alvarez. There Eichorst served as the department’s chief operating officer, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the highly successful athletics program.

In his first year at Miami, Eichorst helped raise the university’s academic reputation, building on the school’s NCAA Top 10 Percent recognition in Academic Progress Rates for five programs, including football, baseball, men’s diving, women’s cross country and women’s golf. He also was successful in enlarging the Hurricane Club of donors and fans, increasing memberships by 500 in one year.

The Miami men’s and women’s basketball programs both advanced to the postseason under his leadership. The women posting the highest national ranking in school history at No. 5 overall, and advanced to the NCAA second round, while the men set a program record for conference wins and advanced to the NIT second round. The women’s tennis team advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals. The baseball program extended its NCAA postseason appearances record streak to 40 straight seasons and the women’s soccer team posted the first NCAA postseason win in program history. Volleyball advanced to the NCAA postseason for the third consecutive year.

At Wisconsin, Eichorst oversaw a department of 23 intercollegiate athletic programs, 850 student-athletes, 320 full-time employees and operated a multi-million-dollar budget. He was involved in the design and planning of a new ice hockey and swim facility, as well as a student-athlete performance center. He joined the Badgers’ staff in 2006 as senior associate athletic director and was promoted to executive associate athletic director in 2007.

From 2004-2006 he served as senior associate athletic director for administration at the University of South Carolina, where he also served as interim athletic director in June 2005.

A native of Lone Rock, Wis., Eichorst was an all-conference defensive back, three-time letter winner and 1990 team captain for the UW-Whitewater football team. He graduated magna cum laude in business from UW-Whitewater in 1990 and earned a law degree from Marquette University in 1995. In 2006 he was awarded the Sports Law Alumnus of the Year by Marquette. He also is a graduate of the Sports Management Institute and serves on its executive committee. Eichorst practiced law in Milwaukee until 1999, when he was hired by UW-Whitewater as director of athletics, a position he held until 2003. Under his tenure, UW-Whitewater developed into one of the nation’s top Division III athletic programs, with one NCAA team championship (volleyball), four NCAA team national runner-up finishes and seven individual NCAA champions. The program also featured an NCAA Student-Athlete of the Year for Wisconsin, 84 All-Americans, 38 Academic All-America selections and nine NCAA postgraduate scholarship winners.

He is a past member of the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Reinstatement Committee and State Bar of Wisconsin Board of Governors. He also previously served as an assistant adjunct professor of law at Marquette University Law School, where he taught classes in sports law. He serves on the Marquette University National Sports Law Institute board of advisers.

Eichorst and his wife Kristin have three sons, Jack, Joseph and Bennett.

Eichorst’s salary has been set at $973,000. His contract is for five years. It provides for a substantial financial penalty if he leaves UNL within the five-year period and a $750,000 payment by the university if he stays for five years.

Bill Self, KU Agree on Contract Through 2021-22 Season

LAWRENCE, Kan. – The University of Kansas and head men’s basketball coach Bill Self have agreed to a contract designed to keep Self at KU through the 2021-22 season.

One of the winningest college basketball coaches in the country, Self led KU to the NCAA title in 2008 and to the championship game this past season. He is one of only four coaches in NCAA history to lead three schools’ teams to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. In nine seasons at KU his teams have reached two Final Fours, five Elite Eights and six Sweet 16s, and his teams have won eight straight Big 12 Conference regular-season titles. Self’s KU teams have won an average of 29.9 games per year, and have not been seeded lower than fourth in their nine trips to the NCAA Tournament.

“We believe Bill Self is among a very small number of elite basketball coaches in this country,” KU Athletics Director Sheahon Zenger said, “and this ensures that we compensate him accordingly. We are proud of the way he represents the University of Kansas, Kansas Athletics and the entire State of Kansas, and we are thrilled that he will remain our coach for at least another decade.”

Bill Self not only wins, but he wins the right way,” KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said. “He emphasizes the importance of players being both students and athletes, and is himself an active contributor to the university and community. Bill is an outstanding coach and ambassador for KU, and I’m very happy he’ll continue to lead the team for many years to come.”

In order for Self to earn the maximum amount of the contract, including retention bonuses, he must remain as head coach at KU through the 2021-22 season. As with his previous contract, no taxpayer or tuition funds will be used to pay this new contract.

Self’s current contract, which runs through June 2018, pays him $3.376 million, including base salary and annual service payments, as well as retention payments that are payable in 2013 and 2018.

The new contract pays Self $3.856 million annually, an increase of some $480,000 per year. In addition, Self will earn a second retention bonus of $876,000 per year, payable in 2015 and 2018. That second retention bonus is replaced in 2019 by an agreement to pay Self a one-time sum of $6 million if he remains KU’s coach through March 2022.

The contract also includes the following incentives:

• Regular-season conference championship ($50,000). • Conference postseason tournament championship ($25,000). • AP Coach of the Year ($100,000). • Final Four appearance ($150,000). • NCAA Championship ($200,000).

“Cindy and I are thrilled that we will live in Lawrence for years to come,” Self said. “We love Lawrence and the University of Kansas. We’ve been fortunate to have worked with great coaches and players at KU over the past nine years; they’ve been the backbone of our success. We both are very appreciative of Chancellor Gray-Little and Sheahon Zenger for the faith and trust they have shown in us, and we look forward to our association with KU in the years to come.”
