Postby AfricanMustang » Wed Oct 14, 2020 6:18 pm

The University of Houston’s Dana Holgorsen remains the highest-paid Group of Five coach and among the top tier of compensated coaches in college football.

Holgorsen’s $3.61 million salary for the 2020 season is No. 37 among the 119 contracts available in Football Bowl Subdivision, according to the USA Today coaching salary database.

Jimbo Fisher (Texas A&M) is the fifth-highest paid coach in the nation at $7.5 million. Among Texas coaches, TCU’s Gary Patterson is ninth on the list at $6,130,937, followed by Texas’ Tom Herman ($5,827,917) at 11th.

Texas Tech’s Matt Wells ($2,872,833) is 54th, North Texas’ Seth Littrell ($1.85 million) is 66th, SMU’s Sonny Dykes ($1,340,314) is 75th, Rice’s Mike Bloomgren ($1,332,308) is 76th and Texas State’s Jake Spavital ($802,000) is 88th.

UTSA’s Jeff Traylor is No. 96 ($742,000) and UTEP’s Dana Dimel ($714,499) is 98th.

A salary was not available for Baylor’s Dave Aranda.

Alabama’s Nick Saban remains the highest-paid coach in the country with a total compensation of $9.3 million in 2020. LSU’s Ed Orgeron is second at $8.9 million.

It's strange they can't get a salary for Aranda. It's not like Baylor's administration to hide stuff.

Do not know if his pay still includes monies from his prior contract or not. I hope when his contract is up for renewal they (the school and big boosters) will step up and pay him top dollar instead of turning their backs on the program like they did on bball.
