The Southeastern Conference announced Thursday that they generated $596.9 million in revenue for the 2016-17 fiscal year with each school receiving $40.9 million. Per ESPN:
The average distribution from the league does not include bowl revenue retained by participating schools, which totals $23.1 million. The SEC's payout for the most recent fiscal year, which ended Aug. 31, represents a slight increase from fiscal year 2015-16, when the league generated $584.2 million and distributed approximately $40.4 million to its members, excluding bowl money.
The SEC's revenue total comes from its television agreements, bowl agreements, the College Football Playoff, conference championship events in football and men's basketball, NCAA championships and a supplemental surplus distribution. The distribution total doesn't include $7.8 million in NCAA grants split among the SEC's 14 member schools.
