Univ. releases EADA report

The university released its annual Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act (EADA) Data Report, a document that discloses information about gender equity in athletic programs. The document included a breakdown of the Athletics Program’s Participation Rates and Financial Support Data for the 2020-2021 academic year. 

Lauren Haynie, Director of Athletics, sent an annual notice out to community members on Oct. 15 with the EADA Data Report attached. “You will note that this year’s report is based solely on the sports that the university competed in last academic year, but a full accounting for all sports is available in the caveat box of the report,” wrote Haynie in her email.

The data collected on the sheets noted the cancellation of a majority of sports events due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place last academic year. According to the datasheet in Table 1, the only teams to compete in the 2020-2021 academic year were baseball, softball, outdoor track and tennis. 

The report breaks down the number of female and male coaches based on whether they are an assistant coach or a head coach. The report also breaks down the gender of the coaches and the gender of the team they coach. 

The EADA Data Report also gives the salary breakdowns for part-time head coaches of male and female teams. According to the report, male team head coaches at the university receive an average salary of $48,861 annually, whereas female team part time head coaches receive an average $47,085 annually. This pay is only for coaching duties. 

The EADA Data Report also provides the salary breakdowns for assistant coaches for male and female teams. The average institutional salary per assistant coaching position was $18,299 for men’s teams and $12,069 for women’s teams. This pay is only for coaching duties. The total head coaches salaries, according to the report, were $146,583 for the men’s teams and $141,255 for the women’s teams, for a total of $287,838. The total salaries for assistant coaches were $73,196 for men’s teams and $60,345 for women’s teams, for a total of $133,541, for coaching duties only.
