collage football is a business ,the only way the a.d can have a rediculious salary is to overpay the coach .at lease the coach's bring in the money but it doesn,t make sense to pay acoach more that a productive manager in the business world .since assistent coachs are subject to move pretty often extra pay is probabvly fair .
Sports coaches at the college level should be paid at the same level of college professors and instructors. Those professors impact countless numbers of students to succeed and make a difference in the world. Coaches get rewarded no matter what they do even if they get fired from one job they go to another. They care very little about the young people who play for them and a great deal about their own security.
If Holgorsen has a good season next year this article will be forgotten, if not he will be on the hot seat, but his defense sucked, so if I was him I might be looking at a good defensive coordinator to hire or looking for another job.
Here in Ohio State Country they should just go ahead and start paying the players.Game ticket prices have just been raised along with tuition.
Use the extra money to hire a defensive staff! Is there one ?
While I am struggling to help my kids through college , LSU gives their football coach a $500,000 raise for an annual salary of $4.3 MILLION PER YEAR ! 7 year contract.....wtf ?....That's a coach's salary ? BS ! Don't even wonder why tuition is $30-40 grand per year !....That's more than some professional football players salaries....Jeeeeesh !
I just called him at 304-293-4194 and left a message about what a greedy sob I think he is.
Is anyone's presence at a particular place/job really worth 2mill. a year? The same person at a desk on Wall St. is a monster. There is always a "faster gun" out there who'll be happy to do it for half, just to get the chance. I am pretty Conservative in most all things, but I can't affirm such crazy pay.
Gee...I thought Kirk Ferentz of the Hawkeyes would be named in this article! He gets $3.875M/year -- and the Hawkeyes had a 2:6 Big Ten season and were 4:8 overall! Heck, Iowa can't even get rid of this slightly better than .500 career coach because his contract (through 2020) has a 75% buyout clause! (That's right folks, "loseing" is not considered "cause" in football when it comes to employment contracts). Athletic director Gary Barta better be concerned about his contract b/c the frustration over having to stick with Kirk for another 7 years could be taken out on him!
