    I haven't been paying too much attention to salaries over the lat few years. Will 1.5 million a year bring in a decent guy? A 3 year rollover contract or does it have to be 4-5 yrs?

    No clue about rollover contracts, but 1.5 million IS ENOUGH to hire one of the best coordinators in the nation at least.

    It is a year old but some type of combination of salary/bonus that totals around $1.5 should be more than enough. This is PAC10 salary and where they rank nationally per ESPN.

    1. Pete Carroll, USC: $4.4 million
    T26. Jeff Tedford, California: $1.85 million
    T26. Steve Sarkisian, Washington: $1.85 million
    T34. Chip Kelly, Oregon: $1.5 million
    T45. Rick Neuheisel, UCLA: $1.25 million
    T55. Dennis Erickson, Arizona State: $1.1 million
    T55. Mike Riley, Oregon State: $1.1 million
    65. Mike Stoops, Arizona: $1.025 million
    T66. Jim Harbaugh, Stanford: $1 million
    T85. Paul Wulff, Washington State: $600,000

    Anywhere from $1 million to $2 million is plenty unless we're trying to hire Will Muschamp or something. The coaches that have $3-4 million a year contracts are the ones that have already had serious success. If we win a national championship I'm sure the school would throw down an extra million or two a year to keep the guy around.

    Since we're paying Hawk $1 million/year right now, I would like to hope that we should be able to go above that if needed and into the $1.5-2 million/year range. Hopefully with at least another $500 K for the assistant salary pool. Basing those increases on the new Pac TV deal, increased alumni donations from the Pac move, excitement around the new HC, ...
