Small consolation, Tennessee fans – at least Dave Hart hasn’t gotten taken this badly.
The cost of a football victory keeps climbing for Kansas.This season, the university paid Charlie Weis $2.5 million for one win — the highest cost per victory among schools whose teams won at least one game, according to an annual analysis of football coaches’ compensation. Kansas paid Turner Gill $1.05 million for each of two wins last season, after paying Gill $700,000 for each of three wins in 2010.
The best part of this story is that it’s actually the continuation of a trend at Kansas.
Kansas is the only Bowl Subdivision school among the top five in cost inefficiency in each of the past three seasons.
This season, KU paid over $1 million more per win more than the school that had the lowest rate of return last season.
That is freakin’ awesome, my friends. If I were an AD who found myself in the market for a new football coach at the same time Kansas was, I’d make sure the Jayhawks hired first, just to get a name off the board.
