Pic that shows the highest paid public employee by state...

Do you consider this "awful"? I don't really think it is a big deal. Its not like the average head football coach in each state has a higher salary than the average doctor. Especially when you consider that the head coaches of these programs are generating hundreds of millions of dollars.




eta: Lots of talk about "priorities" and "summing up what is wrong with this country"

As a society our lives are focused around entertainment, when has this ever not been the case?

No, it's entertainment. Entertainers get paid the most and they control the entertainment as head coaches.

Exactly. Plus this is an example of making a big deal about outlier data and then saying it is a representative sample of something.

I don't think it's awful. It's where the money is flowing naturally. It sucks that Bieber is making millions and its a shame that society values that! But it's not awful that he's able to pull that money. It's a market and value question

This map is incorrect. Les doesn't make more than the academic leaders from state monies.

Are they including their entire pay package or just the base salary that is paid by the athletic department which is included as public pay ? As for as LSU ath department they receive zero dollars from the state so I am completely find with Louisiana on this one.

Like someone said its about market value and in terms of actually dollars some states are getting a far greater return than what they are paying the head coach ie Alabama and Louisiana

In most of those states, the football program nets nowhere near the revenue to cover his salary. Schools like LSU are outliers.

Is it possible that it's a coach from another state school whose entire salary is base without incentives? If not, incentives must be included. Does ULLs coach make that much?

They receive zero subsidies but the coaches are employees of the state just like professors are..the state pays salary regardless of what department they fall under.
