Orgeron is the ninth highest paid coach in the SEC along with Arkansas' Chad Morris.

And it shouldn’t go up no matter what. It’s predicated on aranda and hiring the best assistants. All he does is recruit. I’d give aranda 1$ less than oregeron. He’s worth it.

Did any one look at the buyouts? Saban 33 million which I get. But Malzahn is 33 mil too. No wonder they can’t get rid of him.

The biggest risk in buyouts is Jimbo....by far. He is set up large no matter what happens at aTm.

You have to add his and Aranda's salary's together. We have 2 head coaches.

LOL at your school paying the coach of a college football team $8.3 million/year. Priorities, I guess...

@Monday. Do you realize that division 1 athletic departments are separate entities from the university itself with its own income and budget? LSU football kicks back money to LSU general fund. Learn how it works communist

Whatever, comrade. You do realize that's an insane amount of money to pay a coach of a college football team. Litenin has an interesting comment below, too

Would be interesting to see where LSU ranks if the entire football staff of coaches and analysts were included.
