While we’re on the subject of the escalation of head coaches’ salaries and paying for the privilege of the same, it looks like their assistants aren’t missing out either:
The Austin American-Statesman reported earlier this month that Texas will pay each of its co-defensive coordinators, Duane Akina and Larry Mac Duff, $300,000 this year. Texas offensive coordinator Greg Davis, believed to be among the four highest-paid assistant coaches in the country, will make $351,440 this year, according to the American-Statesman.
Almost a million dollars for three assistants! That’s the football equivalent of George Carlin’s joke that cocaine is God’s way of telling you you have too much money…
