New Oped in Fox News

If we simply paid athletes, coaches would still have value but not nearly as much. For example, suppose Louisville has the best college coach in the country, but offered an athlete a salary of $20,000 in addition to the full scholarship. Suppose UCLA had the 10th best coach, but offered that same athlete a salary of $35,000. You could imagine that many of the athletes in this situation would choose to take the higher salary over the best coach.
