    Here are the football salaries for our assistants from Buffzone.com:

    Football staff base salary

    Mark Helfrich, offensive coordinator, $208,000

    Ron Collins, defensive coordinator, $208,000

    Jeff Grimes, asst head coach/offensive line, $190,000

    Kent Riddle, tight ends/special teams, $187,500

    Eric Kiesau, wide receivers/passing game, $186,160

    Greg Brown, secondary, $137,500

    Brian Cabral, asst head coach/linebackers, $130,000

    Romeo Bandison, defensive line, $130,000

    Darian Hagan, running backs, $88,400

    So nothing against Kent Riddle but how does a special teams/TE coach make fifty thousand more than the best LB coach in the nation? And Hagan making $88,400 after snagging Scott? Thoughts?

    That's screwed up. I hope those guys all get some residuals from camps & other stuff. Cabral should be at the top of that list. :huh:

    I would say those are all pretty low.

    Those figures do say "Base salary". No mention of residuals.

    Those cant be that up to date. Cabral is the assistant head coach, making him the number 2 man on the field, their is no way he has the 2nd lowest base salary. It is very possible that his residuals even things out, but he should have the 2nd highest salary for how well he is respected by the football community and how much history he has with the CU program.

    On a side note, anyone have any information on how those salaries stack up throughout the Big 12? Nationaly?

    My guess is that those salaries are pretty low compared to the rest of the conference.

    I think Kent Riddle is the recruiting coordinator too, although I could be wrong. Not sure why Cabral isn't making more.

    Keep in mind though, that the daily camera isn't exactly a consistently reliable source when it comes to actual facts. Wild suppositions, yes. They're champs at that.

    Those numbers are up to date...I think Cabral and Hagan were inadvertently penalized by being holdovers from the old staff. The pay scale before was too low - the new guys coming in are getting paid at a competitive rate but they have not bumped the holdovers enough.

    Hagan is also the most inexperienced coach on the staff and only holds title of running backs coach, but I'm sure he will be getting a pay bump soon. Cabral should be making more in the area of Kiseau, Riddle, and Grimes. The coordinators are always going to make the most money.

    Here's the salary article

    http://buffzone.com/news/2008/jun/04/cu-sports-contracts-on-tap-for-k-mac-hawkins/

    "Hawkins said earlier this spring he is not interested in receiving a significant raise with any extension, but he hopes the school will provide raises for his assistant coaches, all of whom are at-will employees and don't have the protection of multi-year contracts."

    Funny because Hawkins got extended today.

    The assistant coaches are eligible for raises July 1st. I'm sure Cabral will get one since he has been promoted to assistant head coach. Our coaching salaries are a tad below Nebraska's, 1,451,396 vs. $1,575,000 respectively.
