Re: “Tommy West Fired at Memphis

Don't anyone one of you know that the real problem is Ms. Raines. She has plenty of money to send to the football program which will bring more money with it to the school in ticket sales, concessions and donations. She wastes money on professor salaries. Many professors make over $100,000 per year. Feel free to check it our for yourselves. You can go to…
and find the professor names and go to… (type in last name to improve search) and find their salaries. Southwest Community Colege pays a adjunct teacher $1500/class. Many professors at UofM make over $120,000 per year and teach 6 semester hours a week or 12 semester hours a year (dont let the special study or dissertation classes make you think they teach more than 6 hours a week - these types of classes are very little work). This means that they make about $30,000 per class where adjunct teachers at Southwest make $1500 per class. UT Martin requires their professors to teach 12 hours a week and pay about half as much as UofM. These are all state institutions but their presidents make different financial decisions.

Ms. Raines has plenty of money at her disposal to support the football program but she wastes it on these professor salaries by paying 20 times more for a teacher than does Southwest. She should be fired for wasting the taxpayer dollars like this. I guess she doesnt know or care that the poor pay her $300,000 salary and $150,000 annual salary in retirement every time they buy something. This is unbelievable that she takes from the poor and waste their money on people who have 6 figure salaries and work 6 hours a week. Ms Raines why dont you take your $150,000 per year retirement and leave. You just wasted nearly 3 million dollars when you fired Tommy West. How does a person become the president of a college and cant do simple math? Quit wasting our money and take a math or accounting class for free you might just learn something.
