WKU athletics working around budget challenges - Brad Stephens, Daily News

Todd Stewart compares his athletic department’s budget challenges to defending the Alamo. The Western Kentucky athletic director has seen statewide budget costs and declining student enrollment eat into projected budgets. Now a new Conference USA television deal that distributes far less to the 14 member schools than the previous deal is causing revenue to shrink even further. Add to those factors the fact WKU will begin paying its students a cost of attendance stipend this school year, and Stewart said the department’s budget “is what keeps me up at night.”
