Which College Football Assistant Coaches Make The Most?

+

USA Today has released their list of highest paid college football assistant coaches from around the country. Oklahoma State's own Glenn Spencer is the 50th highest paid assistant at $550k. Mike Yurcich just missed making the Top 100 at 111th, making $400k. That's chump change in comparison to Virginia Tech's Bud Foster though, he's the highest paid assistant in the land at $1,369,500 per year.

Baylor's Phil Bennett is number 1 in the Big 12, and 9th overall, hauling in $897,926 per year. That's without known bonus potential even! Up next for the Big 12 is Mike Stoops making $856,400 per year. Yes, that's the same Mike Stoops several OU fans were calling to be fired after OU's embarrassing Bedlam loss. Yikes!

Here's how the Big 12 stacks up against each other in total assistant staff salaries.
1. Oklahoma ($4,077,900)
2. Texas ($3,841,640)
3. West Virginia ($2,884,000)
4. Oklahoma State ($2,837,000)
5. Kansas State ($2,813,325)
6. Texas Tech ($2,155,100)
7. Iowa State ($2,110,900)
8. Kansas ($2,105,000)
Baylor and TCU's total assistant coaching salaries were unavailable.

Does anyone do more with less than Kansas State? They're like the person you see on TV that can take $10 to the grocery store and walk out with 20 carts full of food. When you try to do it though, you get exactly 1 two-liter Coke, a frozen pizza, and as much Ramen Noodle as you can get with what's left over.

Head over to the link to see how they compare with some of the top schools in the country.
