Max Siegel will be around for at least one more Olympic cycle.
Most interesting part of the press release is that USATF paid FW Cook, an executive compensation firm, to determine if they were paying Siegel too much money. The release said FW Cook's results were "methodically analyzed" when it came to making their recommendations for Siegel's new contract. But it notably does not say what those results were.
On the one hand, it's good that the Board realizes Siegel's pay might be out of whack. On the flip side, how much did it cost to hire FW Cook? USATF is paying FW Cook, presumably, tens (hundreds?) of thousands of dollars when pretty much anyone can see Siegel is overpaid?
I'm going to be very interested to see how much his new salary is, but the new contract doesn't kick in until 2024 and USATF is always very late releasing their tax filings. So we may not find out until late 2025 when USATF releases its tax filing for 2024.
