Keeping up with the Sabans

Auburn has bumped its salary pool for its nine assistant football coaches by nearly $1 million.  Four assistants will make at least a half million dollars a year and no assistant will be paid less than $325,000, and yet

The Tigers inched closer to Alabama’s figures ($4.463 million) with the latest raises, though the Tide have yet to release updated figures following the season and the arrival of assistant Lane Kiffin.

Nussmeier’s base salary last year was $680,000.  Junior should be well north of that number.

Maybe Auburn can catch up with another SEC title.

    According to USA Today, Kiffin’s total salary is $2,594,091 over 3 years. Poor Bobo, can’t get no respect.

    Instead, they should buy that 3rd book for their library.

    Kiffie’s wife looks good whether wearing a T or an A…

    Bama hires Kiffin, Auburn hires Pearl. Beloved Rocky Toppers, they. Now at the Capstone and on the Plains, respectively. What’s next for these two? A bidding war for Orgeron? Or convincing Petrino to dishonor his contract and bolt UL (not a terribly hard thing to do, I’d wager).

    Ah, what’s a little friendly competition?
