Texas Tech senior associate athletic director Bobby Gleason, who watched over an athletic department budget that grew from $9 million when he started to $77 million this year, will retire on June 30, according to an announcement Friday.
Gleason has been the athletic department's chief financial officer for 22 years. "Since I arrived at Texas Tech, Bobby Gleason's acumen and direction with our finances has been invaluable," athletic director Kirby Hocutt said in Tech's announcement. Gleason was director of business affairs for the Tech Research Foundation starting in 1989. He joined the athletic department in 1994 as assistant AD for business operations, then was promoted to associate AD in 1995 and later to deputy AD under Gerald Myers. His tenure corresponded with the first two decades of the Big 12 and Tech's investing about $300 million in sports facilities. "Bobby is as good as any financial officer in college athletics," Myers said. Former Tech basketball coach Bob Knight called Gleason "one of the very best and most cooperative people in athletics." "I have known no better person in my career in athletics than Bobby Gleason," Knight said.

Bobby Gleason, senior associate director and chief financial officer at Texas Tech's Athletics Business Office, talks about the cost and revenue of the university's football program. (Video by A-J Media reporter Sarah Rafique)
Bobby Gleason, senior associate director and chief financial officer at Texas Tech's Athletics Business Office, says, on average, a single home game costs Tech about $150,000. Sarah Rafique / A-J Media Bobby Gleason, senior associate director and chief financial officer at Texas Tech's Athletics Business Office, says, on average, a single home game costs Tech about $150,000. From security and medical crew arriving at Jones AT&T Stadium hours before kickoff to cleanup crews making sure the stands return to pristine condition, Tech anticipates spending nearly $1 million this season on event management alone, according to information provided by Bobby Gleason, senior associate director and chief financial officer at Tech's Athletics Business Office. Some games may cost more than others based on the popularity of the visiting team that day, Gleason said. But, on average, a single home game costs Tech about $150,000. "That's all-inclusive," Gleason said. "Sometimes we budget and hope to come in under budget. I've always kind of estimated, when you add everything in ... it's going to be roughly $125,000, (to) $150,000 per game." The main factor that would impact the cost of a single Tech game would be attendance, Gleason said. "Sometimes Texas, (Oklahoma), they'll cost more than Sam Houston or Steven F. Austin will," he said. Separate from the event management budget, Tech football has a $4,156,000 operating budget this year, with $655,000 for recruiting and $1,580,000 for team travel, which includes a total of 75 people, Gleason said. During the 2014-15 men's football season, Tech generated more than $16.5 million in revenue from ticket sales, parking and concessions, according to Gleason. The 2015-16 men's football budget projects a revenue of nearly $16 million this season, with $15 million of that coming from ticket sales, $600,000 from concessions, $250,000 from parking and $10,000 in other revenue. Tech is also budgeted to receive $300,000 this year from the Arkansas Razorbacks to offset travel expenses to Fayetteville, Arkansas, for the Sept. 19 game, which the Red Raiders won 35-24 Gleason, who has been at Tech for more than 20 years, said one of the biggest changes in the Red Raiders' revenue generation is the reliance on TV contracts, which can reach up to $25 million from Big 12 disbursement. "Back in 1994, we were on (TV) periodically. Some of our bigger games would be on TV, but a lot the games were not on TV," he said. "We would depend heavily on ticket sales, which we still do, but the trend has become much more revenue generation from television rather than ticket sales." $76 million athletics budget Gleason has seen Tech's athletics program and its budget grow since the Red Raiders moved from the Southwest Conference to the Big 12 in 1996. Now, Tech athletics' annual operating budget of $76 million covers 17 NCAA-sponsored sports: nine female sports and eight male sports. That budget is heavily influenced by the cost and revenue generated by football and basketball. "Those sports (have) excess revenue that ... help us provide the funding for the other 15 sports," Gleason said.
