This article is a reminder that a certain someone is in line for a big raise that we haven’t heard about yet.
Towers throws out a few numbers for comparison:
Georgia’s signing of basketball coach Tom Crean to a six-year, $19.2 million contract last week made a statement…
According to USA Today’s latest report, Saban currently earns $6.94 million annually. That’s actually less than the salaries that new Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher ($7.5 million) and old Auburn coach Gus Malzahn ($7 million) are due to pull in based on new contracts…
Dan Mullen went from Mississippi State to Florida and now makes $6.1 million a year. Tennessee hired Jeremy Pruitt from Alabama and he’s due to draw a $4 million salary from the Vols.
And just like that, they all make more than Smart ($3.75 million). Now what?
He then speculates that if McGarity is of a mind to make a statement as he did with Crean’s salary, Kirby is about to become Georgia’s “first Six Million Dollar Man”. The thing is, even if McGarity’s not of such a mind, Jimmy Sexton no doubt is.
Does six mill sound about right to you? If so, where do things go if Kirby actually drags a national championship trophy back to Athens in the near future?
