Forget about those friggin’ satellite camps. It’s stuff like this that really gets the Greg McGaritys of the college football world’s panties in a wad:
Michigan’s assistants will set a new standard for college football coach salaries, with three — offensive coordinator Tim Drevno, defensive coordinator Don Brown and passing game coordinator and assistant head coach Pep Hamilton — making $1 million for the next three seasons.
LSU and Alabama both had two assistants at or above $1 million last season. No public school has had three at a time, according to USA Today research.
That’s not even the worst of it. Drevno and Brown have five-year deals and Hamilton has a four-year contract.
The startled reaction many people had to that Monte Kiffin million-dollar-a-year deal back in the halcyon days of 2009 seems so quaint now. Hell, 2014 seems long ago, for that matter. Unless you’re McGarity having to defend the reserve fund against the next salary onslaught.
Damn that Harbaugh.
