Lost in all of the excitement around the assistant coaches’ new contracts was the news that Rock Oliver inked a new deal with UK too.
The Kentucky basketball strength and conditioning coach will make $170,000 annually over the next two years. His previous deal was set to expire on June 30.
He will also receive incentives based on the team’s performance on the court and in the classroom, but it’s unclear if there is a package to reward him for flexing his guns on the bench.
I bet Mrs. Tyler is ecstatic. Chris thinks $170,000 is pocket change.
