WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue Athletics announced Tuesday that football head coach Jeff Brohm, L. Dick Buell men's basketball head coach Matt Painter, women's basketball head coach Sharon Versyp and director of intercollegiate athletics Mike Bobinski have each voluntarily taken a 20% reduction in salary, and agreed to forego any incentive compensation over the 12-month period beginning Sept. 1, 2020.

According to Purdue Athletics, these four, along with other coaches and administrators, have announced to pledge $1 million to the More Than A Game campaign on Purdue Day of Giving.

"As we face unprecedented medical and financial uncertainty, we've been focused on strategies to limit the impact on the support we provide our student-athletes, and that best protect the long term interests of coaches and staff," said Mike Bobinski, vice president and director of intercollegiate athletics. "Our current reality required that some uncomfortable and difficult decisions be made and I'm grateful for the understanding and resilience shown by our entire team of coaches and staff."

The More Than A Game campaign was launched earlier this month, in partnership with the John Purdue Club, to help the athletics department navigate the financial ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic and position Boilermaker athletics for future success.
