You can now add Dorrell to the list. According to Barrett Sallee, the first-year Colorado head coach is taking a 10% pay cut. His salary for the upcoming season is reportedly more than $3 million.

At this point, it’s not surprising whenever anybody has to take a pay cut during the coronavirus. In fact, you should consider yourself lucky if you still have a job.

The coronavirus pandemic has ravaged the world of sports, and there are obvious financial ramifications because of that.

Things will also only get worse if the football season gets canceled. If the season doesn’t happen, then a 10% pay cut will be the least of the concerns athletic departments have.

Right now, programs are looking to find ways to save money amid an unknown future, and pay cuts are just the first step.
