The Longhorns are pulling free meals from all their coaches to save roughly $300,000.
According to scout.com, coaches used to be able to eat with their players in the dining hall any time they wanted. Now, they’re being capped at 30 visits. Beginning that 31st visit and any time after that, it’s $10 per meal. Moreover, they are not allowed to eat past 6 p.m. in the dining hall.
I think they’re missing the boat – are these meals for the convenience of the employer? If not, then the first 30 visits might be subject to taxation.
