Thought this was an interesting financial tidbit: “… Georgia’s Fran Brown is the highest-paid coach whose only official duty is to coach defensive backs.”
And it looks like, in just a couple of weeks on the job, he’s already having an effect.
It’s going to be interesting watching the money shuffle for Georgia’s assistants. Kirby’s willing to pay top dollar for coaches who have a significant upside. Some reallocation of funds was coming anyway, just on the basis of Lanning’s and Luke’s departures, and I expect that when the dust settles, we’ll see Todd Monken making some serious bank going forward. (How forward remains to be seen, but as far as I’m concerned, Monken is welcome to stay in Athens for a long time.)
Kirby is demanding, but at least he pays well.
