It's amazing how much assistant coaches salaries have escalated in the last 5 years. When Jeff Bowden was the OC at FSU (2006) his salary was $141,000/year.
good to know he got/is getting the full buyout, most of those involve a gainful employment clause if they get another job. All the more reason he's not worried about pay.
"New, gainful employment doesn't eliminate or change his final buyout total in any way, according to his contract with the university, which runs through Dec. 31, 2014."
