Apparently that makes him the highest paid coordinator out there. 2.5 million for a coordinator.....it is unreal what is happening with coaching salaries. There has to be a breaking point coming soon.

According to the 2019 USA Today list of coaching salaries, his 2.5 million would put him at #54 in terms of head coaches. And he is just a coordinator. Any coach that has retired in the last 10 years or so has to think if only they had been born just a little bit later.

Amusing as his HC tenure at Baylor was probably one of the worst...ever.

It is not just college coaching salaries alone. Imagine how shock old retired Vikings players like Chuck Foreman by how much money players are making today.

It was A LOT of growth.

Here is a game he coached:

Last play of the game.

Baylor is up by 4.

They could simply take a knee....but instead:

That is honestly the first time I’ve seen that happen. Was he immediately fired after the game?

Worse than that....it happened in his second game as a HC.

He wouldn't be fired until 2002.

He went 9 and 36. His highest win count in a season was 3.

True, but player salaries have been big for a while now. Coaches salaries have exploded in the past few years, especially at the college level.

That play was unreal. Just an idiot move on the coaching side to run a play when you have the option to just run out the clock and get the W.

Imagine hiring a guy and getting that quick a look at how much of a disaster the next few years will be.

12 seconds! UNLV had no time outs. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen in college football, by far.
