    I know it probably doesn't happen, but it seems like a coach could put his money where his mouth is and donate to the AD to help with facilities, scholarships, etc. I know Barnett supplemented his staff, but that not quite what I'm talking about.

    Is this in violation of NCAA rules?

    I'm pretty sure Joe Pa has been doing it for years at Penn St.

    No, it's not against NCAA rules and from what I gather it seems to be a somewhat common practice at many schools for coaches to donate to their athletic department's development club...

    Franchione gave a donation to A&M when he was there to build something, I forget what. It was a pretty large donation, though. Upwards of $1 million I believe.

    Cool, good to hear. I'd be interested to see if Hawk has donated any loot.

    Joe Pa gives money to the university, not the AD. I believe the library and some other stuff was paid for by him and is named for him/his family.

    I don't know if our football gameday programs have this but at some schools they list all the donors in the program...if anyone has one and can take a look to see if anyone notable is on there that'd be a start...

    Now, come on. Hawk supplements his assistant's salaries. I think the Hawk "hate" has gone a bit to far.

    It was a mistake. JoPa thought he was contributing to social security.
