Leavitt’s ready to run

Get your sun dials ready: USF coach Jim Leavitt said he will run a timed 40-yard dash
Leavitt joked he might run a 5.9-second 40-yard dash.
“You could show me running on the Jumbotron,” Leavitt said.
Edrington suggested USF students, who beat Leavitt’s 40-time could receive a free T-shirt. That’s something USF officials are considering.
The spring game is April 11 at 7 p.m. at Raymond James Stadium. It will be televised on BrightHouse Sports Network, Ch. 47 in Tampa.
Tresey, Burnham numbers: As requested by Smooth of Orlando (I wish my parents would have named me Smooth, what a sweet name), here are the salaries of Joe Tresey while at Cincinnati and Wally Burnham at Iowa State.
At Cincinnati in 2007, Tresey made a $130,000 base salary and also received a $10,833 bowl bonus for a total of $140,833. In 2008, Tresey made $170,000 and also received a $28,333 bowl bonus for a total of $198,333. He will make $190,000 at USF this year, excluding any bonuses.
When Burnham left for Iowa State, Leavitt told the Tribune’s Martin Fennelly that Burnham, who made $220,000 at USF, would make “twice as much” at Iowa State. Not quite.
Burnham will make $55,000 more at ISU then he did last year at USF, so if Burnham would have received a $20,000-$30,000 raise at USF, the difference between his 2009 ISU and USF salaries would have been about $25,000-$35,000.
Burnham’s contract at Iowa State will pay him $275,000 in 2009 and $300,000 in 2010. If the Cyclones go bowling this fall, it would mean an additional $13,750 for Burnham.
