Bang for the buck

One other thing we can say about this season:  if you’re one of the top five college coaches in pay, you sure didn’t earn it on the field.

Courtesy of Coaches Hot Seat Blog, here’s the list.

  1. Charlie Weis ($4,000,000) – worst season in Notre Dame history.
  2. Bob Stoops ($3,620,000) – fourth BCS loss in a row.
  3. Nick Saban ($3,503,000) – narrowly avoided losing record with Independence Bowl win.
  4. Urban Meyer ($3,384,000) – four loss season.
  5. Kirk Ferentz ($3,030,000) – capped a 6-6 season with a loss to a 5-7 MAC team; no bowl.

Mark Richt is currently at #13 on that list.  Contrary to Dink’s expectations, there’s probably a raise in MR’s future.  He’s certainly had a better season than the above group.  And is looking at better prospects for next year, for that matter.

    I’m surprised Pete Carroll isn’t on that list, but he’s worth every dime USC pays him.


  2. He’s seventh, behind Petrino (!).

    I agree with you on his value.
