--Women’s basketball head coach.
--The women’s basketball team’s three full-time assistant coaches.
If there is no contact for any of these individuals, please forward the letter(s) of intent or other document(s) outlining each person’s conditions of employment -- including bonus structure -- and/or a current statement of salary.

4.. An itemized list of incentive bonus amounts actually paid to the current men’s basketball head coach from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.
