    When you are outspent by Missouri, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Arkansas, why do you expect to be elite? We really need to stop being a tightwad.

    Those guys at the top are well established and experienced coordinators who deserve that kind of money. Our salaries are competitive- I'm sure the next OC will be paid more than Pease

    Amazing to see what assistant coaches are getting these days. More power to them, if they are good.

    When you pay your head coach $2.7 million per year, that doesn't leave as much for your assistants.

    Vandy and Miss St. are the only two schools not on that list. Telling.

    Les Miles makes over $4 million and yet LSU has 4 assistants on the list to UF's 2.

    Arkansas' Bret Bilema makes almost $5 million if I am not mistaken.

    Simply put, UF is a tightwad right now and the results on the field show it. Muschamp was a cheap hire, plain and simple in my opinion.

    Pease was the second highest paid OC on that list (tied with Cameron - but had a higher bonus potential). If he maxed out on his bonuses, he actually would have been the highest paid OC in the conference. When Weis was hired he was paid over $800K and was amongst the country's highest paid assistants at the time.

    I can understand Durkin not making more. When he became the DC his salary was doubled, it would have been ridiculous to instantly shoot him up higher than that to start out.

    Fair points on Pease and Weis. Durkin on the surface I can agree as well but it sure doesn't look good when other DCs are making more than 2x's your guys salary. What was the DC's salary last year (I can't recall his name right now but the guy from Seattle)?

    This is Foley nickle and dime-ing our program... He's a great talent finder.. he just needs to pony-up the cash to get, and keep, the best out there.

    What stood out most to me was LSU RB coach Frank Wilson as the highest paid non-coordinator in the SEC, making $600,000.

    Seriously? A RB coach making more than what most colleges pay their OC.

    I've felt that we have underpaid our assistants for years, and that has led to so much turnover.
