    Salaries for football coaching staff: (per ESPN)
    this is amazing - they make more than me!


    The four-time championship-winning coach will make an NCAA-best $6.5 million in base salary per year through Jan. 21, 2022. The new contract adds two years and roughly $1 million annually in salary from the previous raise he received in April 2013.

    More from ESPN.com
    No contract, no matter how enormous, will keep Nick Saban's potential suitors at bay, Alex Scarborough writes. Story

    Saban also will be awarded a $400,000 completion bonus per year, bringing the total contract to $55.2 million.

    "We are honored by the commitment the University of Alabama has made to us with this new contract," Saban said in a statement. "It is certainly a mutual agreement in terms of our commitment to the University of Alabama. We will continue to work hard to keep our football program among the nation's elite."

    In addition to having the highest-paid head coach in college football, Alabama also boasts one of the highest-paid coordinators in the game. Kirby Smart, Saban's longtime defensive coordinator, will earn more than $1.3 million through Feb. 28, 2017, after the compensation committee voted to extend his contract by one year.

    Lane Kiffin, who was hired as Alabama's offensive coordinator in January, was approved for a three-year contract that will pay him $680,000 the first two years and then $714,000 the year after that.

    New defensive line coach Bo Davis was signed through February 2016 at $450,00 per year, and inside linebackers coach Kevin Steele was also signed through February 2016 at a salary of $700,000 per year.

    This is a year old but I'm sure it's still relevant and sickening.

    Not the defensive coordinator, not the secondary coach, not the linebacker coach . . .

    the INSIDE linebackers coach . . . the guy responsible for TWO players on the field . . . for HALF the game . . . gets

    $700,000 a year

    the mind boggles.

    Every Alabama alum and fan I know (and that is dozens) thought Saban underpaid previously. The general consensus is that his salary is "the best money 'Bama ever spent, and continues to be an even better investment with each passing year" (paraphrase from memory). While I do not share their view, it is their money and everyone seems beyond giddy about it, with an amazing quorum of agreement. This, from the very same people who most want to open up college athletics and "just pay the boys".
