Oregon prepared to offer Quin Snyder the lowest salary in college basketball

If the Oregon Ducks are unable to lure Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo with the largest salary in college basketball, sources close to the program say they are prepared to offer Quin Snyder the lowest salary in the sport. Snyder, the former Duke assistant and Missouri head coach, and current head coach of the Austin Toros of the NBDL, has a conditional three-year, $117,000 offer on the table. If Izzo ultimately declines Oregon, Snyder is expected to accept. "Definitely," said Snyder. "A salary of $39,000 a year would be almost twice what I make in the NBDL." Oregon booster Phil Knight hopes the school's offer to Snyder will compel Izzo to leave Michigan State. "If he turns us down, the job will go to Snyder," said Knight. "How humiliating would that be for him to have it be publicly known that he was only one spot above Quin Snyder on a school's wish list?"
