Highest Paid Employees At Pitt

By: Mike Vukovcan

Pittsburgh (KDKA)- The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran a story today listing the top paid employees in 2009 at the University of Pittsburgh.

The story was based on just released 2009 IRS filings.

Here are some of the highlights from the story from the Post-Gazette:
*Basketball coach Jamie Dixon’s total compensation for 2009 was $1,692,852. That included $694,453 in base salary, $838,500 in bonus and incentive compensation as well as other non-cash compensation.

*Former football coach Dave Wannstedt’s total compensation for 2009 was $1,434,331. That included $546,587 in base pay, $825,000 in bonus and incentive compensation and other non-cash income.

*Arthur Levine, senior vice chancellor for health sciences and dean of Pitt’s school of medicine, total compensation was $803,707.

*Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg’s total compensation was $691,413.

*Pitt Athletic Director Steve Pederson’s total compensation for 2009 was $599,807.

In case you’re wondering, new Pitt football coach Todd Graham reported compensation for 2011 will be $2 million. I wonder how Dixon feels about that?

    No wonder the universities are in trouble with the state! Paying salaries like that and taking billions from the state then upping the tuition double the rate of inflation…all in the name of sports! They should be ashamed.

  3. Broke from Taxes says:

    These numbers are peanuts compared to the unionized State Owned University System Admistrators. Those people are paid like NBA Stars. Basketball and Football pay for themselves and most of the other sports. Lousy basketball = no swimming

  4. Mario says:

  5. Corey Barcus says:

    FYI, Football and basketball for 2009 covered all those salaries including those of all other coaches in Pitt athletics and made the school an additional 12.56 million. Do your resaerch before you comment “JUDE”.
