Mo’ money

Further evidence that assistant salaries in the SEC are gonna go through the roof in the near term:  Auburn hires running backs coach away from Oklahoma State to the tune of $400K per year.

Yep, that’s more than Georgia pays either of its coordinators.  Today.

    Oh boy. I’m still mad at Trooper for his antics after the 2004 UT game and before the 2005 UT game.


  2. Think about it: Auburn is able to outbid T. Boone Pickens.

    That’s some TV contract.

    “That’s some TV contract.”

    exactly. there’s going to be a massive adjustment to revenue in the sec. we can blame mike hamilton (or i can, anyway) for firing the first salvo, but this more robust salaries arms race was inevitable the moment the contract was inked.

    Is it also possible that Tennessee and Auburn with much lower than average H/C salaries has more “cap space” to hire these big-name assistants? Not to mention the fact that Kiffin and Chizik need all the big-name assistance they can get ?
