One of the premier NCAA Division I women’s basketball programs is included in a pay discrimination settlement. UConn has agreed to pay $249,539 to seven women, including four members of the 2014 women’s basketball staff after the U.S. Labor Department found that they were underpaid compared to men in similar positions.
Chris Dailey, the women’s associate head coach that season, received a salary of $313,000. The men’s team didn’t have an associate head coach, but the men’s assistant coach — a lower position — made a little over $312,600.
The Huskies won four National Championships in a row from 2013-2016 and began a record 111 game winning streak in 2014 that ended in 2017.
Among The Underpaid Positions:
Women’s Associate Head Basketball Coach
Assistant Basketball Coaches
Director of Women’s Basketball Operations
Director of Football Operations
