Austin Thomas salary - F King meddling in FB program
Why does Austin Thomas who probably does more than anyone on the FB staff make the least amount? Also supposedly F King is putting caps on assistant salaries. If this is true someone needs to step up and tell him to stay out of TAF business

Because the actual coaches probably wouldn't like that.

How'd they sneak Canada and Aranda's salary past him?

I could be wrong, but didn't they give him a raise to get him back from USC?

He should have been fired on two separate occasions, saying LSU is going bankrupt and scaring the shite out of donors and then the head coaching BS from last year, at this point he may have to burn the university down to get fired.

Why are you comparing his salary to position coaches?

It never ceases to amaze me how many job and salary experts we have on this board. Everyone knows that this guy makes too much/not enough and who is doing their jobs the best.

It's like a damn HR department in here.

You don't think the guy who was our best recruiter this year , also in charge of player personnel, organizes everything to do with recruiting and is known as the best at his job in the country deserves to make as much as a guy who was a GA 3 months ago ?

How am I supposed to verify that? F king told alleva that O had 800 k to spend on the 2 new assistants so they ended up not hiring Adam Henry because they couldn't afford both him and Robinson.
If you don't see that the leadership at LSU is a big problem then you are blind

Bull shite. Austin recruits and handles way more aspects of the program than assistant coaches do. Other similar personnel in the SEC make way more than he does.

The man needs to be paid more (somewhere in the 350-500 range imo)

Dr Alexander (who I dislike as LSU Prez) has not put a cap on assistants' salaries. He did make a public comment about coaching salaries being high and that maybe the NCAA should consider a cap. That comment has spun off a dozen rumors about FKA supposedly interfering in AD business.

LSU BOS should get rid of FKA but we should do it based on facts and not rumors.

Give a source. Supposedly doesn't mean squat.

I'm absolutely sure you have some documentation of that. I'd love to see it because I had not heard/read that. What/who you got to back it up?

TIA
