I’ve wondered that same question, about the endowment funds for those sports. I’d have to think it gets frozen or returned to the donor, but not sure. I also doubt any of the sports they are cutting have sizes or endowment funds. That would keep them from being cut, if they did.

Also, that’s an interesting point about the cost of living. Coaching at Stanford, and many other California school, is unreasonable for many coaches, particularly assistant coaches.

As an NCAA coach, you need to live within a quick drive to campus for a number of reasons. The women’s swim coach at Stanford, Greg Meehan, told a group of coaches that he was pretty much breaking even with his salary there, until he was gifted free on-campus housing. We’re talking 200-300K dollars a year, and you’re breaking even due to cost of living. And it only took him a few national titles to earn that on-campus housing.
