Amazing Guy This Tony Bennett

Pretty amazing in this age of grab the biggest contract and sell your soul to the pros. From ESPN:

"Virginia men's basketball coach Tony Bennett declined to take a raise while extending his contract by another year.

The Cavaliers announced the extension Monday, saying Bennett asked for the money to be used to pay his staff more and for improvements to both his program as well as other Virginia athletic teams.

"[My wife] Laurel and I are in a great spot, and in the past I've had increases in my contract," Bennett said in the news release. "We just feel a great peace about where we're at, all that's taken place, and how we feel about this athletic department and this community and this school. I love being at UVA.

"... I have more than enough, and if there are ways that this can help out the athletic department, the other programs and coaches, by not tying up so much [in men's basketball], that's my desire."

Speaking of the "other Tony Bennett" I had tickets so see him New Year's Eve at a casino in Allentown. He cancelled due to a health issue and rescheduled in April. I couldn't make the new date. To make up for his missed date he brought Lady Gaga along. Oh well.
