Drinks are on Gary

The success of the Terrapins basketball team this season has also fattened the wallets of the coaching staff. Head man Gary Williams earned a tidy $318,000 for finishing tied for first place in the ACC. The assistant coaches all netted about $10,000 for this finish. That is a big boost for Rob Ehsan who is scheduled to make a paltry $66,000 this year and has been doing excellent work on the recruiting trail. When Maryland receives a bid to the NCAA Tournament the assistants will make another $15,000 plus other incentives if the team advances further. When you consider the athletic director gave James Franklin a $1million head coach in waiting deal the bonuses for the assistants and Gary Williams is money well spent.
