become senior associate commissioner for external affairs for the Horizon League.
Butler University basketball coach Brad Stevens has an annual base pay of $350,000 with another $37,851 in benefits and deferred

Horizon League Commissioner Jon LeCrone never envisioned himself getting into the television business. But that

Local TV station WNDY Channel 23 announced Friday that it will broadcast 13 Butler University men's basketball games this
season, starting with the Bulldogs' Nov. 21 game at the University of Evansville.
