Head men’s hockey coach Jerry York’s total compensation from Boston College increased by more than 20 percent-up to $638,975-in 2012, according to the University’s 2013 Fiscal Year IRS Form 990, which was released this week. In 2011, York received a base salary of $454,075, according to BC’s 2012 990, and that base salary increased to $561,743 last year. York agreed to a contract extension last November that runs through 2019-20.
New head football coach Steve Addazio and Director of Athletics Brad Bates did not have their salaries listed in the most recent Form 990. Bates was hired in October of 2012 and Addazio was hired in December of the same year. BC’s fiscal year for the form ran from June 1, 2012 to May 31, 2013. The section that includes the compensation for the University’s 20 highest-paid employees is determined by the calendar year ending in December 2012, though, likely disqualifying Addazio and Bates from inclusion. Although Addazio’s salary is not listed, he did receive a $500,000 loan from the University for a mortgage in 2012, according to the form.
Frank Spaziani and Gene DeFilippo, the predecessors of Addazio and Bates, respectively, had little change in their compensation from 2011 to 2012, nor did former men’s basketball coach Steve Donahue, who was fired last month. Spaziani received a total compensation of around $1.1 million, a less than two percent decrease from the year before. He was fired in November of 2012. The total compensation of DeFilippo, who officially retired in October of 2012, was reported at $637,959, a less than one percent change from his 2011 total. Donahue received $995,063 in total compensation in 2012, a less than one percent decrease from the previous year.
Al Skinner, the men’s basketball head coach before Donahue, received more than $500,000 from the University for the third straight year, paying out part of his terminated contract after he was fired in the spring of 2010. In the period from 2010-12, BC paid Donahue $2.73 million while also paying Skinner $1.77 million, according to the University’s last three Form 990s.
The total compensation in the form is a compilation of an employee’s base compensation, “other reportable compensation,” “retirement and other deferred compensation,” and “nontaxable benefits.” The Form 990 is an annual report that most federally tax-exempt organizations are required to fill with the IRS.
