This … the Sendek hiring … is the first major test of Engh’s commitment: Sendek is receiving a substantial raise over his predecessor, Kerry Keating. That’s partly to be expected because of his resume — Keating was a UCLA assistant when he came aboard — but it also seems like the administration is actually putting its money where its apathy used to be. It’s only a start. What about the salary pool for assistant coaches? What about the recruiting budget? The staff size? The money earmarked to buy a reasonable number of winnable home games? (Victory has a price, if you hadn’t realized.)
