    Default College Football Coaching Salaries Just Had the Bar Raised

    U Texas just offered Bill Muscamp, the Defensive Coordinator, a new contract for over $900,000. That's for an assistant coach boys and girls. That's more than a 100% raise from $425,000.

    That was an enticement to keep him at UT until Brown retires in a year or two. Kinda like Jimbo Fisher at FSU, they want a smooth transition to a new coach.

    It makes sense to make a smooth transition so that they won't have a season like the current one at Michigan, or like last year at ND. Wins are what keep the boosters writing checks so the investment is worth it in the long run.

    The $12,000,000.00 they get for being in a BCS bowl does not hurt either.

    The BCS conference teams share the wealth with the conference. Texas will get a $15 Mil bowl game as will Missouri or TTech, but it gets added into the conference kitty will all other bowl cash, then spilt equally amongst the teams after travel expenses are allocated. Doing so stabilizes athletic department income. For non-BCS conferences like the WAC, getting a BCS game becomes conference bonus.

    Not sure what all the conferences do, but the ACC shares the bowl and television revenues equally among the member institutions. The participating schools do get a bit more to cover travel costs.

    That's why the only way to significantly increase revenues at a school like Maryland is to get people in the seats for football and basketball games.

    I was amazed to learn this year that Clemson sells something like 80,000 season tickets for football. I had no idea that occured at the college level, though I guess I should have known. I sure the same holds true for traditional football powers like Ohio State and Penn State, with their 100,000 plus seating capacity. That is a LOT of money coming into the athletic department.

    Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan always sellout every seat in the house before the end of July, though no all are season tickets.

    Rutgers sells out the house on season tickets, but that's a mere 43,000+ seats. Like the Giants and Jets, season ticket wannabes are on a waiting list until the stadium construction is enclosed. Last I heard the wait list was over 20,000 names and each one pays $40 each year for the priviledge of being on the list. Donate $250 and you move right up and get offered season tickets.

    Rutgers sells out of season tickets!! Again, I'm surprised but congratulations.

    I don't think we sell more than 20,000 season tickets for Maryland. With 10,000 seats set aside for students that still leaves 15,000ish tickets available on a per-game basis.

    However, we ARE sold our for tomorrow night's Arctic Bowl....err game with Florida State.....

    Good call fatguy.

    What Ryou should be complaining about is the massive amount that Rutgers is shelling out for its head football coach to be mediocre. One big win over UL on national television and now two other wins over BCS opponents with winning records in the last few years is all he's done, and yet he's making more money than JoePa.

    Talk about wasted tax payer dollars in NJ.

    Majority of Schiano's salary, like every other headcoach, comes from the associated alumni booster club and third party deals. Same as Ohio State, Penn State, Texas......
