Erstad’s Salary half of Mike Anderson’s

New Nebraska baseball coach Darin Erstad is drawing a starting salary of $160,000 a year. But Jane Farrell of the university's athletic business office said Monday that Erstad's contract has not been finalized.

Erstad's pay is less than half the $330,000 former coach Mike Anderson earned in his final season. Erstad retired in 2009 after playing 14 years in the major leagues. He was Anderson's volunteer assistant and hitting coach in 2011.

 Athletic director Tom Osborne fired Anderson after the Cornhuskers failed to qualify for the Big 12 tournament for a third straight year.
