    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?

    T26. Steve Sarkisian, Washington: $1.85 million

    T45. Rick Neuheisel, UCLA: $1.25 million

    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.

    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, ...
