I got this from USA Today (from November 2009): Here are the annual salaries (including bonuses) for nine of the the Pac-10 head coaches, according to the paper. I’ve compiled the rankings, and the comments are mine: 1. Pete Carroll: $4,386,652 Given the Trojans’ success/revenue, I’d argue he’s underpaid relative to the coaches immediately below him on this list. 2. Jeff Tedford: $2,807,500 Getting paid like a heavyweight — he makes almost as much as Mack Brown and more than Georgia’s Mark Richt — which means he needs to win like a heavyweight. 3. Steve Sarkisian: $1,833,333 Defensive coordinator Nick Holt, at 600k/annually, is one of the nation’s highest-paid assistants. 4. Dennis Erickson: $1,502,643 Based on how the Devils have performed since the end of ‘07, I’m more interested in Erickson’s buyout than his salary. 5. Chip Kelly: $1,500,000 That breaks down to more than $200,000 per career victory. 6. Rick Neuheisel: $1,276,000 Check back this time next year to see if he’s earning it. 7. Mike Stoops: $1,265,000 About time for another extension. (It’s been all of six months since the last one.) 8. Mike Riley: $950,000 As I’ve written before, he’s the greatest value in Pac-10 sports given how successful the Beavers have been the past 3+ seasons. 9. Jim Harbaugh: N/A Believed to be in the $750,000 range, with a $1.25 million (or more) extension pending. Arguably the second-best bargain in the league. 10. Paul Wulff: $601,000 Has he considered giving any of it back?
