Publish date:

In a very interesting project, the USA Today along with the National Sports Law Institute of Marquette University Law School and Stinson Morrison Heckler LLP put together a list of head coaching salaries for most Division IA schools.

There were no real shockers on this list with Alabama’s Nick Saban being the richest coach around and Kent State’s Doug Martin being the poorest.

Check out the totals below.
