News Of The Day: College Football Coaches See Salaries Rise in Down Economy
USA Today has a great report about the increase in wages for college football coaches and assistants that we’re seeing even as universities cut staff, cut programs and furlough other employees as a result of the bad economy. I love college football. We all do here. But haven’t we lost perspective when a school is paying a coach $2.8 million a year and has $430 million dedicated to football stadium improvements at the same time it’s suffering a $150 million cut in state funding? These are still supposedly institutes of higher education, right?
