Fresh off a season in which four-loss LSU finished eighteenth nationally in scoring defense, twelfth in total defense and 28th in defensive yards per play, the Tigers are on the cusp of making defensive coordinator Dave Aranda college football’s first assistant to crack the $2 million/year salary barrier. What’s the over/under on the number of others who will join him in the next five years?
And before you say SEC’s gonna SEC, note that UCF, in an act of financial self-gratification, is going to pay its assistant coaches and support staff bonuses totaling $325,000 as part of claiming a mythical national championship.
It’s a good thing there isn’t any money to pay the players. That would be irresponsible, right?
